With all of the budget cuts that the state has had to implement, education has taken a hit. In a time when levies are paying for the standard curriculum (which is unconstitutional), we cannot afford to take any more away from our schools.
The projected budget will take more away from schools. Education is the heartbeat of a society. If we can’t invest in our education, the entire community will suffer.
As unpopular as this may make me, an income tax would create the revenue needed for us to keep our schools running and even improve upon the current conditions. Despite the recent studies, I think most people would agree that our teachers are grossly underpaid. In these economic times, education is the one thing we must invest in. The future of our society depends on it.
