Letter: Cutting school budget does not make sense

Posted

To the editor:

In response to Mr. Rimoshytus, I absolutely disagree that cutting the school budget would make any sense given the uncertainties and costs of reopening the schools. We do not yet know what extra resources we will need to ensure our children are learning as we navigate new waters. There is a chance we may need extra staff for buses and classrooms to social distance children. I think it is safe to say that most parents are anxious about what the year will look like and cutting the school budget would add to these anxieties. In fact, it seems likely the schools will need more and not less funding.
