Defunding Children, A National Crisis of the Soul

Defunding Children, A National Crisis of the Soul

Belle Chesler

Three weeks ago, I sat in a cramped conference room in the large public high school where I teach in Beaverton, Oregon. I was listening to the principal deliver a scripted PowerPoint presentation on the $35-million-dollar budget deficit our district faces in the upcoming school year.

Ahh . . . the American nightmare continues. The students can go to Trump University; that’ll solve everything.
