The problem is not just that the budget is being cut, but which programs and how much. North Carolina School of Science and Math is being allocated $19Million in the coming year to serve a scant 650 students, while the Science Olympiad program that serves 10,000 students across NC with less than 1% of that is cut entirely. That's a false economy - overspending on the entitlements of a small elite and cutting one of the most cost-effective, broad reaching science and technology programs the state has.

Science Olympiad got it's start in North Carolina - I guess we can be proud that there was once a time when we cared about giving all our students a chance at the future, even if that no longer seems to be the case. What a shame.
