Every parent should know in order to give their child the best education they need to invest more time and money for them. Our public school system needs to do the same for our children. Hiring a private consultant to tell us what we need to get rid of in order to save $156M doesn’t mean it will be what’s good for our children. Let’s take for example the recommendation to remove 600 school aide positions. It is important that we have enough school aides in every school who are responsible for the safety of our children before and after school and during breaks and lunches. We cannot jeopardize the quality of our children’s safety & education in our public schools. What we need to do is start collecting money that is owed to our public structure so that we can better fund our public schools and all the other agencies.
