Mark Parkinson cut public schools on Monday by $36 million, in addition to not funding the $156 million needed to compensate for increased school costs. Since last year, base state aid has been cut from $4,433 per pupil to $4,012 per pupil. “Some districts will be forced to lay off teachers and close schools,” Parkinson said.
