I just found out this week I was lucky to keep the two assistants I have this year for the upcoming year. I had requested another one for next year.. We are working short as it is..
I was told they are pulling assistants from each school because of lacking of State funding.. Like what is going on here?
I am all for the lottery helping those with college expenses who would otherwise not get to go..
However, we need to start from bottom up here.
Each child deserves the best education possible in the earlier grades.. and if they ever so have a desire to go to college, then that should be considered..
Tax payers.. and lottery players... Should have a vote on where that money goes first..
I am not asking for more money each month as a teacher, but more help to meet the needs of these children..
