Education cuts will harm student, schools

Written by 

To the Editor:

Republicans are cutting off education from beginning to end in North Carolina.

The new cuts will take away a significant amount of funding from the Smart Start pre-kindergarten program and also from the UNC school system, where cuts are already taking effect. The cuts also include the loss of 13,000 teacher’s aides and more teachers from schools across the country. Class sizes will increase and with the loss of teachers aides a more difficult learning environment for students will arise.

In an effort to make class sizes smaller, the budget is only stifling the current classroom situation at the start and the end of each student’s educational life. North Carolina needs to re-think the cuts to education as a favor to the future of the state and the image of the system as a whole.

This Must Be the Place

    art theplaceI did it again. It’s 9 a.m. last Saturday at the starting line of the Cashiers Trail Mix five-mile backwoods race. I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
