Let’s be honest: All College students are of voting age. Every elected official in North Carolina needs votes. If our student bodies unite, our families and friends also agree to support us, and we make a genuine effort to educate citizens of North Carolina in regards to how important funding education is, we could change something. We could change everything. Education wouldn’t be considered fat to be trimmed but an artery to be protected—as it should be. We all have the power of a voice, the power of a story. Budget cuts hurt our peers, our professors, and our parents (they get to foot the bill for rising tuition in most cases). It’s time to talk about it. It is time to start the change.

      education is our only hope. i have 4 kids in the n c school system we cant stand any more cuts. the government needs to take a huge paycut then we would have funds for all organisations. what is going on?

      I am a parent and an educator. How can I justify continued assurances to my sons and my students that if they just "work hard," college education will be within their reach when, with cuts to our educational system, this just isn't true? Why does the road tax continue to increase, despite budget shortfalls, and education (K-12 and post-high-school) continue to suffer? None of this makes sense; we seem to all be viewed as mere cogs in the elitist wheel that turns, despite voter protest, over the economically-disadvantaged.

      the reason I'm signing this is because I'm a junior at western Carolina university and this budget cut would directly affect me and all students on this campus
