Sign Mark Begich’s open letter to the president.
America owes a lot to our teachers — and when the slash-and-burn sequester took effect, education programs took a damaging hit. And now school districts in Alaska and across the country are feeling the crunch.
Washington needs to do a better job of cutting unnecessary and wasteful spending. But education programs are not “wasteful” or “unnecessary.” They are essential.
I strongly urge you, Mr. President, to fully restore education programs in your upcoming budget.
