Budget Crisis Facing Schools
Across the country the education profession is being decimated by drastic budget cuts as a result of fiscal irresponsibility of respective state governments. In NJ, where I work, the Governor took away 862 million dollars in state aid from schools. My district of 2000 students might be looking at losing up to 18 positions and numerous programs. I am curious to know how other educators across the country are dealing with a similar situation and an innovative ideas that you have implemented to save jobs and programs.
