    Again, the issue is not whether we should be cncerned about the budget. The debate is on how to accomplish it.
    Wisconsin cant cut their military and social security. They are doing it how they deem most appropriate. The previous group didnt do it...thats why the current group was elected.

    Just for the record, even though I know the prof will never understand, who said only republicans make msitakes? Aren't you merely playing to a sterotype here?

    Education is not all that is their budget. And they can target things better. And because another group didn't do something doesn't make everythign this group does OK.

    Deregulate the banking and energy markets so that the economy crashes and then cut education funding to try to make up the slack.
    Hell of a plan there GOPhers!!!

    Hell, if their schools were performing better, if their compensation packages were more efficient, maybe their citizens would decide to not cut at all and instead decide to increase taxes to pay for it. Citizens of Wisconsin...how about it? Getting the results you want out of education? Happy with the costs? Willing to pay more? Your state...your rules...

    I realize it is useless to speak to you, but try to keep up:

    Facing $230,000 in budget cuts, Detroit Public Schools have cut 853 jobs, and the employees who stay are being forced to take a 10% pay cut in order to operate under a $1.2 billion budget proposed by their state-appointed emergency financial manager.

    Released on June 23, the draft of the budget also calls for $200 million to be cut from the $327 million budget deficit through the sale of long-term bonds and an additional $48 million in purchased and contracted service cuts.

    However, according to Roy Roberts, the district’s financial manager, most of the 4,400 teaching positions will be spared. Instead, there will be cuts in school administrators, clerical and professional staff, counselors, teacher aides, and central office supervisors.

    Teacher World Milwaukee and Detroit Public Schools’ Budget Cuts Announced

    Now, if Detriot focused more on School administrators and other staff, leaving teachers in the classroom, which would not increase class size as much, I prefer this over cutting 354 teachers and not school administrators.

    Now, I know you won't try to understand, or even consider thinking about it, hence the waste of time, but lord your act gets old.
