Re: “Opinion: Keep Cuts Away From Oakland Classrooms

Ms. Impellizerri, there is NO money and the cuts are going to happen. What part of that don't you understand? If you want books with no missing pages, then buy some $100 textbooks and donate them. If you think a life skills class is a vital investment, then organize a fund raiser and ask parents for at least $500. That's how the richer districts keep their arts and music classes. If you think there needs to be fewer administrators, that's fine but that's not enough. That's like saying Puerto Rico would not have declared bankruptcy if they had fired a few lawmakers. If pensions are underfunded, it's because CalSTRS and CalPERS use dishonest accounting to hide the real costs of pensions, and teachers' unions want it that way. It's a little late to focus on the kids, and the time for you to complain about busted budgets was three or four years ago and not now while the bridge is collapsing. So I suggest you and your fellow parents submit your thoughtful suggestions what to cut (in addition to administrators) unless you want those decisions to be made for you with a dartboard or a magic 8-ball toy.
