Mad About Cuts in Education While Big Business is Bailed Out?

I sure am, and you should be, too. Huge budget cuts have been proposed by Arizona's conservative legislature to K-12 and higher ed, with K-12 getting the brunt of the cuts.

Read this excellent and brief editorial from Vail School District superindent Calivin Baker on proposed K-12 budget cuts, as compared to recent bailouts of the auto and financial systems. An essential read:

Then, especially if you are an Arizona resident, contact your legislative respresentative to let him/her know this isn't acceptable:

Sometimes it sucks to live in a state that does so little to support education. Oh how we miss our dearly departed Democratic governor already....
