This is some bullshit. I've heard many times that North Carolina was gonna cut their school budget (which was already bad), but when I went back to school I actually saw what this caused, and I'm pretty pissed. 20 teachers were cut (including some of my favorites), and it wasn't even based on mucking test scores just what positions are easier too attain. This means that classes are getting full to the limit,and people are getting kicked out, because the classes are too full. I'm not just talking about electives, I'm talking about freaking CORE CLASSES.

All the chemistry classes are full so unless some miracle happens I might have to take chemistry next year, which could mess up all my college plans. The choice their making right now could essentially cripple all our futures. Also unless they can find a Gov. and Politics teacher then I might have to get rid of that off my schedule. This would leave me with three gaping mucking holes that could be filled with credits that would look good on my transcript (according to my counselor I'm supposed to mucking sit in the library for three periods).

They've also cut 5 buses so the bus rides are full to capacity and you can stay on their as long as 6 o'clock. To add to the bullshit, they cut ten minutes off our lunch, and a minute off of each of our between class periods to make another free 15 minute homeroom period. Time that could be spent at lunch! My lunch is literally 20 minutes long. I know that my education system isn't helped by living in a small town, but this is utter bullshit. This makes me want to go into education just so I could try to fix some of this mess.

The icing on the cake is our new governor (Kay Hagan) was supposed to fix education. How is she fixing it by making it worse.

It's much worse in California :( They just raised the community college fees from $20 a unit to $26.

A bunch of parents are going to burn down the school tomorrow or something. This just gets me angry, because North Carolina voted for Kay Hagan because she was supposed to fix our shitty school system (and because Elizabeth dole was a bitch). Since shes been in office the school system has gotten even worse, and our budgets are getting cut even more. She was supposed to fight for school systems, and she hasn't done shit (Even Elizabeth Dole would have done a better job). If the school system is a hot mess then Americas future is a hot mess period.

Tomorrow is D-day. If my schedule doesn't get fixed I'm gonna have to transfer out. This is ridiculous their should be enough room for me in my own public school. I like my school, and I like everyone who I go to class so I really hope I don't have to leave :( .

Mizzou had some this year too. However, what they did to prevent all the core courses from getting filled up, they made em all online classes.

My lunch is about two and a half hours. It's not worth the gas to drive home and drive back :?

I actually have a second period spare this semester and a third period spare next semester (before and after lunch respectively) and while it may be long I'm alright with that. 2 hours and 5 minutes is a bit on the long side but it's still pretty awesome.

Unfortunate bump. Fees going from $26 to $36 per credit unit starting in fall semester. It's almost doubled since I first started going here!

People seriously protest at my school because it went up from 16$ to 26$ a credit, oh no. Maybe these people could get a job instead of protesting every day.


Also their solution is
No lay offs or pay cuts
Fire Administrators
this will solve the budget cuts

These are probably the same people complaining that their chicken McNuggets went from 0.99 to 1.50. That's a 50% increase yo!

Did you guys here about the guy in San Antonio who shot into a drive-through window because a Taco Bell sale ended and his burritos now cost $1.50 instead of $0.99.

Well, its better than what I was paying... $350 a credit for core credits, $250-350 depending on the elective, and that was like 10 years ago. That said, you could pay a flat fee for the semester/year and take up to 21 credits a semester for the flat fee.

I am glad I had a partial scholarship....
