The Fairfax County Public School System budget crisis will have a more drastic effect on our children, our teachers and our school than previously thought. The current budget proposes to reduce the number of general education teachers and non-ratio instructional assistants. This means larger class sizes, less teacher-student contact, less core instructional time, combination classes and a reduction in PE and music. This is not theoretical. This will happen if the budget is approved. The principals are only now finding out about the impact at every level, very little is being made public, and no entity (especially our elected officials)is fighting for our students. Please sign this petition to support the comments of WFES PTA President Stacia Aman that will be read into public record on February 6, 2008 and let your voice be heard. The School Board can consider other options - they are just more difficult and these are the easier options. Read Stacia\'s full comments at www.wfespta.org

Richard Allen, United States5 years ago Comments: I believe that there is money in the current budget to maintain, and even increase, in classroom teachers by eliminating administrative positions. The administrative positions should be the first eliminated, especially the numerous assistant superintendents prevalent in the county.
