Have we forgotten about education?

I’m confused. Our town seems more upset about pitbulls, Streetscape and politics than education. Did anyone see the article about building a new jail for millions of dollars (Journal, Dec. 3)? Does anyone see a problem with that? Our local schools are being closed, the class sizes are increasing and parents are taking their children elsewhere. Wouldn’t it make more sense to invest in education, right here in Auburn, with some of that jail money? Perhaps we wouldn’t need a new jail. We need to wake up as a community and help our kids, support our teachers and come up with some real solutions. Where’s the “new” committee for this problem? Misty Green, Auburn
