Those Pesky Budget Cuts: Furloughs

One hundred teachers in the Albert Gallatin school district were sent letters notifying them of possible furloughs. One hundred, all because of budget cuts. The district will lose over $3,000,000 if this state budget passes.

The good news is that no positions have actually been cut yet.

Meanwhile, people need to quit blaming the districts. Yeah, I'm sure money can be cut somewhere and they're not perfect, but these furlough letters wouldn't be going out if the governor wasn't trying to cut education in the state so drastically.
