RECENTLY ON TOL:

If we are not willing to cut anything and we are not willing to pay enough to support everything, then we are stuck with either balancing the budget on the backs of the employees (by lowering their salaries and benefits) or shortening the school year.
Personally, I worry that the "cutting" mentality also includes lowering quality, since many comprehensive programs don't work well when schools implement just the easiest/cheapest parts. I guess that leaves us with: whatever we do in public schools should be high quality and, when the money runs out, that marks the end of the school year.
