  • EDUCATION FUNDING CUT!

    Filed at 3:01 am under by dcobranchi

    Parents, teachers, and other educrats rallied in Dover for more money for education. During the budget crisis schools took a $7M hit and they want their (our) money back, now that the state is at least solvent.

    “We did our part at a time of fiscal restraint,” said George Stone, superintendent of the Delmar School District. “It just doesn’t make sense to penalize our children by asking our schools to operate with less.”

    One problem, though. The budget already calls for a $70M increase in school spending. That’s 8.6 percent! And they want still more?! I hope voters punish the Republican legislators who demagogued on this issue come November. Not likely, if this parent is any indication:

    Seaford parent Susan Michel attended because she is concerned about the quality of the education her children are receiving.

    “How can they maintain the quality if they don’t have the funds?” she asked.

    *Sigh*

    The schools also received a one-time supplement of $9 million this spring for textbooks and technology.

    Umm, there’s quality in public education?
