LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Arkansas' youth and their future is a perfect investment. That's why Tuesday at the state capitol students, teachers, and lawmakers rallied against proposed future cuts of $100 million.

Students said while the idea of tax cuts is popular, it would ignore the consequences for our youth and the equal opportunity for higher education.

Brett Kincaid from Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families said it's important to realize that our children are a good investment.

"We need to have good training. We need to have good jobs, and that comes from having a good education and background from before they enter the grade school program all the way up to high school," Kincaid said.

Kincaid added that a few responsible tax cuts can be helpful but that the budget is already balanced.
