...but apparently some people in California don't think so. The budgets for every single university and community college in California has been drastically cut. So that means institutions like Cal State Long Beach and University of California, Santa Barbara are no choice but to cut programs and even freeze enrollment. It pains me to know that our state education has dropped to the very bottom. We were once outstanding with our education system, but now with all of these cuts, the kids of the next generation won't be very intelligent as a consequence. Why are we doing this? Why are we getting rid of education? I know that our economy is still a major disappointment, but we can't take it out on our schools and universities. On a side note, I'm all for privatizing education, since I don't think the government should be involved in what's taught in our schools. But that's probably not going to become the norm until a dozen years later. In the meantime, we can't ignore the destruction of our education system. Something has to be done. We have to find another way to take care of our budget crisis. It shouldn't be schools and universities; instead it should be something else.
