Dear Governor - Please do Read This for Texas

Sometimes, somethings just disturb me the way only those things can.  Just like the news that the Governor of Texas is reported to cut the cost on education system by some 9billion USD.  Though I am not at all affected by his decision, but since I spent considerable time in Texas out of the total time I have spent in US till date, I got alarmed and I was concerned.  I am like "What are we trying at??? and WHY??"

I would like to request to the Governor or anyone who could draw the attention of Respected Governor towards this post.  Please Please Please Dear Governor Sir, please draw your attention towards what I am writing down here.

I request Hon Governor Sir to kindly review the decision / consideration to cut the state budget by cutting expenses on education funding, in the wake of the consequence that might not have been considered for that matter?  Has the advisory group updated you that this might result in cutting down 20000+ direct or indirect jobs from the education system?  Does the advisory board provide you with an update that with the cutting down of cost and jobs, there might be a fall in the overall quality of education that might be delivered to the students which would mean a dropout or students at a premature stage leaving them helpless with lack of education.

Has the advisory board updated you that pre-mature dropout would mean a lack of skill resources in the job market leaving a huge gap in the demand and supply of skilled resources as required by the industry?

Please consider this that more the gap between demand and supply for skilled resources, more would be the cost of skilled labor and more would be the cost of training them for speciality jobs.  This would mean higher cost of end products raisning the inflation in economy and bringing down the growth rate for the economy.

It is better to incur cost at levels that result in overall growth of the society as well as the growth of economy of the nation.  If every state would follow the suite of our state, do you think United States would be able to stand where it is today "The Most Respected and the Most Powerful Nation?"  please reconsider cutting down the cost incurred in promoting education, for growth of the Nation and of our State, Texas what we proudly call as the Lone Star State.
