Recession reality for schools: Now what?
from District Administration Magazine
Schools still feel the effects of post-recession budget cuts eight years after the economic crisis reached its zenith. A study by the Center on Budget and Policy Studies showed that 25 states in 2014 were spending less per student than before the recession, adjusted for inflation. Budget cuts in seven states exceeded 10 percent, according to the study by the group that analyzes state and national government programs. In 31 states, local government spending per student fell between 2008 and 2014.
