These cuts in education are going to chase even more people away from NY State...and no one will want to move in because the school base will be less than par..the property taxes are going to go up up and up some more were are the taxpayers going to get this money for more taxes ? The State needs to go bankrupt so it can all start from $ 0.00....

Schools are always threaten to cut education but they never do. They have more money than you can ever imagine. I can name a few board memebers who arent doing much and getting big salaries. They could cut back and no one will miss them.

This governor is out of line. Fiscal responsibility is one thing but cutting the schools off at the kneecaps is crazy economics! Education is the key to the future of this state! Education should be last in line for state cuts!!!

Teacher Unions are ruining kids education. Teachers get paid a full year for half a years work? And now all they do is train your kids to be the new version of the Leftist Hitler Youth, to be good little Left wing mind numbed dumbed down robots, who play soccer and dont keep score because they dont want to hurt anyones feelings.

Leftist Hitler Youth!?...little Left wing mind numbed dumbed down robots!?...

Oh no...that was my party's plan. Keep everyone stupid, grow our base of ignorant, religious nuts....
Stop the kids from learn technology and science. Tell them all that evolution is badů

So, this is actually a good thing!

Umm...not sure I totally agree with you.

We need to keep them stupid not so they become Leftist Hitler Youth or good little Left wing mind numbed dumbed down robots. No, we need to keep them dumbed down robots, so they become tea baggers and right wing conservation relirious nuts. Fox News has been a big help with this.

It's the plan to go our base!

The issue is the $$$ wasted on school administrators and unions. Unions will eat their own young to keep a 3% raise. Good teachers be damned, bad ones keep their jobs.

The image in this article looks like the student is about to snort a line of coke. Or is he picking his nose or chewing on a fingernail.

Lots of money and wasted fake effort can be saved by FIRING school nusrses and nurses aides. They do nothing, produce nothing, spew out lies and fearmongering. The schools would be quieter, safer, and have better morale without school nurses. Down with nurses.
