State budget deal sends $1B toward schools
Story not told properly
Your headline on the story in Sunday’s paper was a bit off. [“Schools grateful for $1B in new funding,” NW Sunday, June 30.]
“Schools Grateful for $1B in New Funding.” That sounds too much like, “please sir, may I have some more?” from Oliver Twist.
I have some suggestions.
“Schools Told to Be Grateful for $1B by Legislature That Refused to Adequately Fund Schools for the Last 20 Years.”
Or “$1B Down and $4B To Go.”
Or “Legislators Get Paid for Not Doing Their Job; Education Suffers.”
Or “Legislature Plays Politics while Schools Remain Underfunded.”
These would be a bit more accurate, if edgy.
