Where are our priorities?

How shameful and sad it is that low-paid teachers are working in overcrowded classes and have to depend on donations for school supplies.

The pupils in those classes are future citizens. Learning — or losing out — starts early. And our officials, by looking the other way by way of a negligent budget, will definitely incur major costs later and so will those pupils.

With the millions of dollars pouring in from revenue in sports, tourism, gambling, alcohol, entertainment, etc., making possible a good education seems to be the lowest priority.
