Orange County Public Schools Budget Crisis

March 19th, 2009 12:48 PM by David W. Welch

I am writing this to my Baldwin Park neighbors, to encourage you to contact our state representatives and governor to get serious about fully funding education. It looks like now they are expecting Orange County Public Schools to take $240,000,000 out of their budget. Trust me, I believe all government can trim some fat from their budgets, but this is cutting to the bone. Florida has had a not so hot reputation for schools, yet Orange county has made strides to improve as a district. These kinds of cuts will greatly decrease the effectiveness of our public education system at a time when public eduation is paramount to the success of our country’s economic future.

Here are the e-mail addresses of our state representative Dean Cannon dean.cannon@myfloridahouse.gov, our state senator is Gary Siplin at siplin.gary.web@flsenate.gov and the governor Charlie Crist can be reached at Charlie.Crist@myflorida.com.

Our students cannot afford for us to be silent on this issue
