I am a teacher in Indianapolis Indiana. The govenor Mitch Daniels wants to privatize the public schools. He is making extreme cuts theo public school funding. Arts, Music programs are being cut now. Counselors are being cut also. I do not believe he is going to stop making these huge cuts to public school education. I truly believe the quality of education will be greatly affected. The wealthy people will go to private schools. The ones that will be affected will be the poor. I would like to know who I can contact to help. I believe it will have to be someone on a national level because the state people are being protective of the govenor. Where can I start?
