Everyone, or almost everyone, reading this editorial has experienced the effect of state budget cuts within the past year. All Iowans have directly or indirectly been affected. Most readers of this journal are Iowa educators who have felt the impact in their daily efforts to educate children. Those of us in higher education have been editorially described as working in a "university disaster area." Degree-required classes are not offered to students, offices operate without secretaries, buildings go without repairs and, it would seem, there is not even enough money to pay someone to clean the floors. The cuts are both large and small scale.
