Budget cut for Teacher Assistant

As an Elementary School teacher I am always amazed at the fact of how underrated Lawmakers or how insignicant they place on the role of the Teacher Assistants in the classroom, and not that I am not all about our kids learning what they can from the use of technology and how important it will be in the future, but I believe that kids benefit just as much having two teachers in the classroom to help meet their needs and bridge those academic gaps. I would like to see
TA's in grades K-3, and then starting in the 4th grade let them benefit from all this technology information. The Governor is looking at cutting 3,000 TA positions, but creating 5,000 Pre-K slots, those TA positions that are at risk to being cut those individuals can move to Pre-K, one thing for sure NO PRE-K CLASSROOM CAN OPERATE WITH OUT A TEACHER ASSISTANT.
