Opinion Letters County should get fair share of lottery money

I saw in the paper where teachers might not have a job anymore. Well, what about the Lottery monies? I thought all schools got a part of it. I guess I was wrong. It’s the counties that have more people in them. Well, all schools should get a fair part of that money. It’s a shame that kids in this county have to suffer because of schools on the coast.

Every county should get a percentage of all Lottery sales. Do the right thing and give these teachers their money. Maybe then they won’t be out asking people to fill school buses.

I, for one, think it’s up to the parent to supply paper, notebook and something to write with. Everything else should be bought through the school.
