We must carefully invest the $108M in Federal stimulus money into providing quality education for our children. We know from the recent problems in the past years, poor working conditions in the schools were a major problem that disrupted a lot of learning time for our children. Now we have the chance to invest wisely so that we don’t repeat the same mistakes. Ensuring the faculty, staff and children have safe and proper working conditions will give a better learning environment. There are many other areas we need to improve and it will take more than the stimulus money to make the changes. Continue to follow your elected leaders and see what they are doing to increase funds for education.
