Question of the day

* The House’s budget proposal cuts education by well over $200 million. Here are a few of the cuts…
The Ounce of Prevention Fund claims that the cuts in early childhood education would result in “fewer than 70,000 children” being able to attend preschool this fall in the program. That would be down from 95,000 four years ago. The governor’s introduced budget spared education from cuts.
At the same time, however, prison and other state facility closures have largely been avoided in the House’s budget.
* The Question: Should education be spared from state budget cuts next fiscal year? Take the poll and then explain your answer in comments please. Thanks.
