School Budget Cuts Update

School is back in session and educators find they have a lot fewer resources in the classroom. School districts across the state are living with an historic cut in education funding from the State Legislature. But there is some hope for relief from the federal government. What will the impact of these new federal funds be on Idaho's schools? How are schools faring now that the kids are back in class?

Host Joan Cartan-Hansen brings back four educators and administrators from around Idaho to get an update on the impact of school budget cuts on the state's school children. Guests include Geoffrey Thomas, Madison School District Superintendent; Linda Clark, Meridian School District Superintendent; Mark Moorer, Potlatch School Board Member; and Sherri Wood, Idaho Education Association President.

This is an update of our original "School budget Cuts" show from June 10, 2010.
