To the editor:
House Majority Leader Siegfried, R-Olathe, is reported on the front page of Sunday’s paper as saying “we don’t cut (school budgets) for fun, we’re cutting out of necessity.”
While an article on page 12A of Sunday’s paper reports that Gov. Brownback has approved at least $200 million for highway improvements for 2011.
Clearly the necessity for not spending state money applies to our children but not to our cars.
The actions of elected officials in the state government show us that it is more important to drive on bigger and broader highways than it is to educate our kids, the future voters of Kansas.
