TO THE EDITOR:
I have never been one to be scared of “bureaucracy,” but recent appointments have me worried. My reasons for concern are, to be honest, selfish. But I also find them valid, and I won’t stop fighting for what I think is right.
I am a college student, born of two educators. My father is a kindergarten teacher with over twenty years of experience. My mother is a first grade assistant who is still new to her career.
The previous state administration attempted to cut her job once.
If this new federal administration slashes funding, as they hope to, my mother will lose her job. Period. If this happens I will not be able to afford school, and neither will my sister who attends another UNC-system school.
