Send your children to China....

It's being reported that Klamath County School officials in Oregon are thinking about chopping the school week to four days to save the district $6.3 million annually. District Superintendent Greg Thede says that a $5.8 million cut to his $60 million budget and nearly 20 layoffs last year jump-started the district to form a committee to study the possibility of cutting Fridays from the school week. Right. Cut taxes, especially for the rich, and destroy our schools. Maybe, if Grover Norquist and other shills for the truly wealthy in this country get their way, our children will be able to emigrate to China and work in their factories? Since Reagan, we've seen college go from free or near free to crushingly expensive for working class kids. Is high school next?
