School budget cuts are too deep in Imlay


To the Editor:

As an educator in Imlay City for over 22 years, I am dismayed by the school system's decisions to cut essential staff from some of its most critical programs. One example of these shortsighted cuts is the elimination of the bilingual aid, Francisco Navarro.

For 11 years Mr. Navarro provided critical educational support and served as a role model and mentor for Hispanic teens in Imlay City. His overwhelming impact on some of the city's most at-risk youth and the positive outcomes his work produces have been recognized in the pages of this newspaper and are visible in the academic success and pride of his students.

The current economic climate requires belt-tightening everywhere. But I urge the school system to rethink this misguided decision. Short-term savings cannot justify the long-term costs to some of our most vulnerable children and the community as a whole.

Sincerely,

—Eleana Way Fettig
