The recession is over, so why are school districts still slashing budgets?
Arguing that education budget cuts have whittled away their futures, more than 1,000 Boston public school students took to the streets to protest. In Chicago, there's trouble on the horizon — if forced to take unpaid leave to balance the books, the city's public school teachers say it's "all but certain" they'll go on strike in April. In Detroit, meanwhile, the entire school system may shut down entirely by April 8 if the Michigan legislature can't reach a deal to restructure the system's finances.
