Stop budget cuts on South Carolina schools!

Dear Governor Sanford, As parents we are appalled at the recent budget cuts placed upon South Carolina schools. Our children deserve much, much better than this! Georgia’s per pupil budget is over $5,000.00 per student and North Carolina’s is over $4,000.00 per student. We are furious that our lawmakers passed a bill to give OUR children only $1643.00 per student. This is preposterous! We have a lot of amazing teachers in South Carolina and it is horrible that we may lose many of them because of these cuts! The good, hardworking people of South Carolina elect officials to see that our rights are protected. It is a sad, sad day in South Carolina as we are realizing that no one is protecting the rights of our children. Mr. Governor, we hope that you will be the person to stand on behalf of all South Carolina children and make education a top priority, again.

    Comments: I agree with the others. The name "Education Lottery" is a joke. What good does it do to offer college scholarships if the children coming out of the public education system are not qualified to attend college More money should be spent at the K-12 level.
