Another Year, Another Hopeless Budget

Paul and I attended this event in Auburn, where we heard from Rick Timbs again about the inequities students face in upstate NY and about the false suggestion that we're getting a substantial bump in state aid, when in fact we are simply getting less of a cut. It's hard to imagine how Dr. T keeps this up year after year; I feel like crawling into a hole each time I see the figures in black and white.

I think it's fair to say that not only does O receive a poorer education than I did in Ithaca a million years ago, but she also receives less than she would have in her own district a dozen years ago.
