Dear George Bush:
Hello. I have some concerns to address with you. I am an 11 year old girl. When I grow up I want to be a teacher. When I tell people this they all laugh and say you better marry a rich man. I did not enjoy to find out that teachers get paid basically nothing. Might I remind you these are the people who teach people who become doctors, veterinarians, lawyers, and even our own presidents. With out teachers no one would know anything. We would all be, frankly idiots. Now that you know that, I’ve got something else for you. This is also about teachers. I’ve recently found out that the school boards got a budget cut! Now I have no more field trips. I happen to love field trips, just so you know. I had a conversation with my teacher the other day, her pencil sharpener had broken and she said that she didn’t have enough money to get another. Later that day I realized that the school board bought those things. I am now incredibly mad. But this next part really ticked me off. I find out that while the school board can’t afford a pencil sharpener. You and your congress are peeing on $1000 toilet seats!!! Oh there’s more! You use a new $100 pen on every document you sign. While you can get a 10 pack of pens at Wal-Mart for a $1 and you can use one pen at least a whole year!!!! Oh I have one more story for you. My dad was a painter for the government once and he was painting a room and the people there said, “Slow down, slow down. We’re getting paid by the hour here.” Of course my dad couldn’t do it, he couldn’t paint half a wall then take a three hour coffee break. Shame shame. Now I am furious. So I plead of you to stop spoiling your congressmen and pay our country’s school board more so they can teach the future doctors, veterinarians, lawyers, and even our own presidents. And I do believe that the congress and you are very important to the country but sorry, personally I think the teachers are much more important to this country’s future so maybe you could spoil the teachers with golden toilet pipes and $1000 toilet seats huh. And don’t forget the children they are also very important to this country’s future so give us our field trips give us our pencil sharpeners! Thank you for reading.
Speaking for teachers everywhere,
