Understand the need for education in this country. It is important that we address the issue now. With budget cutting there has come a willingness to educate our youths at a much less expensive rate. It can’t be done.

What is more important than raising a well educated child, than having this child work toward and be compensated for solving the diverse problems that face this country? Still, there has been a lot of money diverted from our education system.

Our nation’s educators are the most important people in this country. They are the ones who make the greatest impact and should be rewarded. They are the ones who do the most good for the most people.

We need to educate our children. They will face the future and make this world better. To deny ourselves this advantage is wrong and selfish to us and, more importantly, to them.
