Commentary: Cutting education not the answer

By Kaley Consford/J-Line Writer ~

Teacher’s lives have been completely altered because of the state’s $27 billion budget shortfall. Teachers will be searching for jobs that cease to even exist as the economy crashes. People who aspired to educate students, and worked hard to be able to share their compassion for knowledge with them, have had their dreams taken away.

Texas teachers are being both encouraged and forced to leave in order to try and fill the gap of an empty budget, yet Gov. Rick Perry still resists opening the $9.4 billion Rainy Day fund. Perry has agreed to dip into the fund this year, but is against using any of the money beyond the current budget year.

Opening up the fund doesn’t make Texas look weak; it just shows that Texas needs help.

Cutting teacher’s contracts and making classes larger will not result in anything beneficial for students or teachers. According to the TLC (Teaching Large Classes) Project, larger class sizes pose significant teaching challenges

The first-year contract teachers being laid off in Humble ISD are not the only cuts being made. Extracurricular activities may also be trimmed or eliminated. Sports, music, fine arts, and clubs are all in danger. According to the American Association of School Administrations, 15 percent of districts are eliminating bus routes and modifying extracurricular offerings or sports

That’s not fair to the students.

To take away teachers is one thing, but to take away the source of school spirit and enjoyable activities is like taking away the meaning of school for many students.

The budget crisis is not just hitting Humble ISD. The entire state is in peril. It’s evident that Texas needs help and that changes do need to be made, but the way Texas has approached this situation is not helping anyone.

Instead, it’s ruining teacher’s lives and creating a grim outlook for the future of education — and the future of the state.
