More Cuts On The Way For Balt. Co. School System
BALTIMORE (WJZ)– The Baltimore County school system is facing a huge budget shortfall, and some tough choices are on the horizon.
According to our media partner “The Baltimore Sun,” the projected shortfall is between $10 million and $24 million in the 2013 fiscal year. County officials say the deficit will have to be closed with cuts and increasing revenue is not an option.
The county has already slashed nearly 200 teaching positions in an effort to trim the budget.
