Budget cut has been the leading problem facing our educational system today. when the state of California announced a four billion dollar budget cut, many Californians have raised more questions with this measure. Budget cuts in education will mean lesser funding for students in classrooms, the classroom will have a bigger student population and the school maintenance will have lesser spending.
Budget cut in education in California will not benefit the students of California. When I first heard of the budget cut, I believe that California public schools will be in danger. Each student is allocated a certain amount of money for one school year which includes reference materials like books and library materials. Teachers will also need projectors, computers and television. With a lesser budget, there will be limited resources for each student. In the end, two students will end up using one book which is not vital to learning.
When the budget cut will be taking its toll, school districts will be forced not to hire teachers anymore. If there will be lesser teachers, classroom populations will be bigger than the usual. A teacher-student ratio is 1:35 but with the budget cut, students in the classroom will increase to 45-50 students. That means more space will be needed to accommodate the students. Also, a crowded classroom is not conducive to the learning process.
Lastly, funding for the school's maintenance will also be affected. Maintaining a classroom and the school as a whole will need better funding, but with the budget cuts, these concerns will be jeopardized. Cleanliness, repairs of roofs and chairs, paints and classroom supplies will be most likely affected. Again, a clean and safe surrounding will be very much conducive to learning because a student who is in this kind of environment will be able to concentrate more.
In the final analysis, budget cut in education will bring a disaster to the students.Students should be given top priority to learn, excel and benefit from school and not depriving them of their right to learn. Budget cuts in education will mean lesser funding for students in classrooms, the classroom will have a bigger student population and the school maintenance will have lesser spending.If California wants to succeed, the public school system must be a priority and the only thing for it to happen is properly funding public schools.
