Did you know that the education system in America is in shambles? Did you realize that school systems across the nation are facing unprecedented budget cuts? Do you understand that in some states, high school sports programs are being slashed? Do we accept that textbook purchases are being delayed? Do we give our consent to school district employee layoffs?

Why don't I see much about this in the media? Why is there more emphasis on analog tv going away than Title I going away? Isn't education just as important as bailing out the auto industry? Does Sarah Palin's new grandson take precedence over education? What about Heath Ledger's death or Beyonce's wedding?

Why are we taking this lying down? Why haven't we joined up with the local/state/national PTA to fight this? Why aren't we staging sit-ins on School Board meetings and State Legislative sessions? Why aren't we marching? Why aren't we contacting our Congressmen, Governors, State Reps & Senators, Mayors, Councilmen, Aldermen, etc. etc.? Don't we care?

Your comments--priceless!

    This is a huge issue in our country. Our kids are being taught to settle for just barely getting by and they are learning short cuts to being "rich, beautiful and successful". It's hard to get some parents to become more involved in their communities and school districts. Too many of us have misplaced priorities and in the end we all suffer.
