funding cuts from CFCC

How can the government attack the monies set aside for education when the ones in government are making 6 digit salaries? Why don't they cut their take home and allow that money to go into the funds. Those politicians ought to be ashamed of themselves. This state is creating a society of convicts due to a lack of funding for education and extracurricular activities that would usually help to keep our kids off the street. There have been massive cuts to all non-profits that help those in need and now the state is after the education funds.
