Budget cuts are ruining the classroom

from Education World

Budget cuts. We’ve been feeling the effects of them for a while, now, haven’t we? At first, we waited patiently, even optimistically. We watched supplies dwindle, books deteriorate, computers fall apart.... We took pay freezes, pay cuts, took a second or a third job, did our best to dodge layoffs.... As an educator, often, your first reaction to such an unsupportive academic environment is to double-down your efforts, if only out of pure spite against the system: You start running free after-school programs to keep the arts alive; you take pride in your ability to creatively manage a classroom with half the resources; you show the world the indomitable spirit of your students.... Unfortunately, these practices don’t tend to be sustainable. more
