Over-taxation, poor quality education, an infra-structure that has unraveled; there were layoff notices to “all” 1,926 teachers in the City of Providence alone. Four schools are scheduled to be shut down in June. Rhode Island’s not alone, it’s nationwide and sadly global. With the events of the past few weeks, the tragedy in Japan. When a nation relies on fossil fuel…when a barrel of oil’s price has skyrocketed…The meltdown of nuclear reactors…brings us to a global meltdown. Our money is worthless, when we “owe” trillions…to other countries. Where are the think tanks?
We need teachers…we need jobs…we need to rebuild this country, rather than forgetting why this nation was formed many years ago. For the closed schools, what about affordable housing? That’s an option. A new tax will be implemented…we think that we’re getting a tax break…break down all the little things that will be taxed…it’s going to cost more for everything. It’s time for some clear thinking and better accountability at which this state and the City of Providence have failed miserably.
We have put enough bandaids on, we need healing ASAP, before we further sink into being poorly educated. Don’t get rid of the teachers. Rhode Island needs a lot of change (check your pockets…before it disappears).
