Letter to the Editor – Reaction to Governor Cuomo's Budget Cuts
February 1, 2010
Instead of further cutting education, the Governor should continue the tax on high-earners, which would provide more than $5 billion in critical revenues. Wall Street bankers can afford to pay a little more to help our kids receive a better chance to learn, especially as their mistakes caused the economy to collapse in the first place.
Competitive grants are a terrible idea. We don't provide health care on the basis of a contest, why should education, a basic human right, be any less important?
