Leaving Children Behind

I really wish that the people in charge would understand what not funding education will do to the future of our country. Who do they think will be running the country 30 years from now?

I love this article about it.  Well, love/hate it. Because it tells the truth, but the truth ain't pretty.

There is a rally in Austin, Texas on March 12. There are ways that the government can spend more money on education, but they are not even considering those options. What is more important? Pleasing the few rich people who donate to your campaign, or the millions of Texas school children who aren't getting the education they will need to be competitive in the future? Unfortunately, they have the wrong answer to that question. And they may say one thing, but their actions tell the true story.

I didn't vote for Rick Perry.
