Proposed budget cuts: students urge board to look in other directions

On  March 19, Obama’s young voices were fed up with the proposed cuts to their schools so they wrote all their feelings on paper and went to go to the Board of Education meeting. Many 9th grade students were there to support their fellow classmates.

When each student talked and looked at the board members, it was clear that students are tired of taking the brunt of cuts and ready for change to our schools and how they are run.  It was hoped that the board would see that there are many students who care about their education and enjoy their academics. Cuts should come in other forms, and not in areas that directly affect students and their classrooms.
