Now if they could only find funding for the education of US citizens. I think it is a shame that we are canceling programs and classes for US citizens, but we find funding for programs for illegal immigrants.

The world has gone mad.

"When fair is foul and foul is fair" has a valid point that US citizens education is being disregarded while the districts are bending over backwards for illegal immigrants. The high school district board and community members met last Monday, April 27th Web Link regarding deep cuts to the adult school. Adult school director Laura Stefanski says there's going to be an increase of fees for some programs. The district administrators announced on Tuesday that they had found funding for the Castro school free ESL program. The funding decisions don't make sense! The administrators and boards should be ashamed of themselves.
