So, the school district just announced what our school budget would be for the year. We were all dreading this as there was a HUGE education cut this year. The total: $30,000. That's it. To keep a school running for an entire year. Our school has 878 kids. That equals out to $34.17/student. That includes the normal things like paper, pencils, erasers, etc... It also includes toilet paper, paper towels, soap, etc. This $30,000 is supposed to cover ink and toner costs for an entire year as well. Do you have any idea how much toner costs?! I'm so angry and upset right now, I can't even type anymore. I hate our government.
