The problem is not just that

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.
