To the editor:
“Let’s cut funding for education” is the new mantra in the state of Kansas, if not the United States. After all, why should we educate our youth and prepare them for the technical future that awaits them when we can just hire a graduate from another country where they take education seriously and provide the funding required.
Why have music and art in the public schools when we can get all we want to see and hear from European or Asian artists on TV. Why learn a second language when business leaders and students from other countries can already speak two or three languages, including English. After all, if we properly fund education, we may have to roll back some of the tax breaks we have given to corporations and the upper income levels within the state of Kansas and the good old U.S. of A. Now we can’t have that, can we?
