The State of Education Budgets Session - April 9, 2010
NCSL Contact: Dan Thatcher

More than half the states have cut or have propsed cuts to K-12 or higher education. These cuts have taken different forms and sizes. This session offers an overview of how and how many states have made cuts to education in the past and current fiscal years. It also will offer a look into what projected budget gaps may portend for state education budgets in the fiscal years ahead.
