Stimulus money deserves thumb

I’m writing in response about the article in the Albert Lea Tribune on Feb. 20, “Schools could get $1 billion from stimulus.” This is great news to all the schools in Minnesota. Finally the change is coming and it’s just the beginning.

The money could be used many ways. It could help with schools who are in debt, new school supplies, more teachers. This money could go a long way.

The students could benefit so much with the new money. As a student I would like smaller classes, so I could get more one on one help. They could hire more teachers and get smaller classes.

I just hope schools don’t waste the money. This is an amazing gift that we should all be grateful for.

Education is a high priority in my mind, to get the U.S. back on track. A higher education can give better jobs. Better jobs can give a stable future to the next generation.

Give a thumbs up to the stimulus package.
