We’re starting to see the fallout as district after district struggles with their education budgets. In today’s Washington Post, the article “Montgomery school budget solution could cost millions in fines” outlines how the Montgomery County, Md. district (and possibly Prince George’s County, too) faces fines for “artificially” satisfying a state law that sets a minimum funding level for education.
Meanwhile, according to the Honolulu Advertiser, Secretary Arne Duncan is criticizing Hawaii for using its education stimulus funds for something other than education, in the article “Hawaii stimulus funds use draws fire.”
How is your district coping with budget cuts?
