I don’t want this to be a political rant… although it could be.
As of right now, my major is Secondary Ed in Speech Communication. Recently, Governor Daugaard has proposed a 10% cut to all education funds. Not only does this add up to more than 1,500 teaching jobs (which is a lot in South Dakota), but some schools have even proposed cutting all extracurricular activities (including debate which is a big motivation for me to enter the field of education).
Before I make any illogical decisions, I will wait to see if the cut becomes official, but if it does I don’t think I can justify getting a teaching degree, which leaves me choosing between the lesser of many evils.
I don’t know what to do…
