What a frusterating time for education. I haven't blogged in quite a while. The truth is, I haven't known what to say.
Klein and Bloomberg are still promising budget cuts, but they won't release the budget. Principals wait in fear, but have no idea what's coming to them. Teacher's salary has gone up, but its unclear whether or not that's accounted for in the new budget. We protested and fussed, but now we don't know who to yell at or what we're even yelling about. I keep finding myself asking, "so whats going on with the budget?" and no one seems to know.

But keep the pressure on. Klein and Bloomberg have decided to be secretive, so we have to be loud. Until the budget is released, and even after, we can't let them forget about us. Don't give up the fight!

For all high school students, NYCSU is organizing a citywide petition against cuts. If you're a high school student interested in helping, please reply to this post.
