Equal Funding for Public Education

Our system of financing public schools is failing and unbalanced. I attended a small rural high school for two years. This school lacked funding, therefore providing a lower quality of education. After transferring to a larger school, I realized the many disparities in our school systems. Larger schools with better funding inherently have a higher quality of education to offer.

Children in smaller and lower-income communities are not receiving an education equal to that of larger, wealthier communities. No child should have to settle for a second-rate education. Jay Jones, Florence Ala.
