There’s an odd headline in The State today:
Bill would help SC schools amid budget cuts
Sounds good, right? Then you read the article.
South Carolina lawmakers gave key approval Wednesday to a bill allowing school districts to increase class sizes and furlough teachers to absorb budget cuts
That’s “help”? If cramming more and more students into a classroom and cutting teacher pay (which really isn’t that great to begin with) is meant to help our schools, I shudder to think what a bill hurting our schools would look like.
