Sequestration forces Indian land, military base schools to make drastic cuts
from The Huffington Post
Military families are always moving around, and those shifts can be tough for children who have to adjust to new surroundings. School districts that serve these students often try to ease the transition by providing counselors for them to talk with. But thanks to sequestration, the Lemoore School District in central California has had to get rid of that service. "These [military parents] go out on crews on a ship for nine months. The kids don't see a parent or two for that long. So they have to deal with that," said Jack Boogaard, the assistant superintendent of schools in Lemoore, Calif.
