And I'm mad as hell about it!
momlogic's Julie: I went to a school-district meeting last night and found out our school faces a $50.3 million deficit next year. I am outraged!
Yes, I live in California -- a state associated these days with earthquakes and money woes. But I paid a small fortune for my house because it's in a "good" school district -- and now I find out that my school is going to be broke soon.
What does this mean for me and my kids? The district is going to increase class sizes (in kindergarten through third grade) to 30 students per teacher. They will eliminate programs like athletics, music and art.
I am beyond upset! I cannot afford private school, but I am not thrilled with these changes my school is forced to make. I'm afraid of how this will negatively impact my children.
Help! Has your school faced budget cuts? How did you deal with it?
