What is it about the word "broke" that you on the left don't understand? Let me explain what broke means: broke means no money. Broke means you are likely in debt. Broke means failure. Why would you choose failure over success?I don't call reducing school staff so that there are 32+ kids in a classroom a success. Kasich has taken away a lot of preschool programs. Should we support a governor that balanced(?) the budget on the backs of Ohio's preschool and school-aged children? The answer is no.
Sorry, but studies already show that class size is irrelevant to student accomplishment. I went to a private school as a child, and our class size was 35 children. In fact, most all of the grades in that school had classes that size. And I would have put any of our students against public school kids with much smaller classes any day of the week.
Okay, so why do the teachers and unions make such a big deal about class size? Because the smaller the classes, the more teachers that are needed. The more teachers that are needed, the more union dues collected.
In a perfect world, that would be fine. But the fact is government is draining us dry. My city of Maple Heights lost a million dollars a year in state funds. We got by. Our locals had to cut here and cut there. Our city Council took a pay reduction. They laid off city employees that were obviously not needed. You can do it if you really have to.
