Budget Cuts to Schools Part I
One of their primary goals will be to hash out a budget for the upcoming year. Governor Charlie Crist has already made his budget proposals, but educators all across the state stand to lose jobs and funding if the budget ax comes down on them.
Educators across Northcentral Florida are worried that if any more cuts are made to their budget, they may have to make some tough decisions. They have discussed the possibility that some schools may not be able to open next year or will have to drastically alter their schedules to survive.
Alachua County Public Schools have already lost more than 20 million in state funding since the beginning of the last school year. But they are not alone. State officials are warning more cuts could be on the way for the rest of this year.
The education crisis is also being felt by all of the school districts in Northcentral Florida. For the complete story please see video:
