Schools districts short 25%, what's the odds that will shut down work soon?

You beat me to it srj....Breaking news: State about 25% short in payments... Then you see this. Money should go to education first...not these damn fields.

This money CAN'T go to the classrooms. Talk to the state about that one.Lawrence already maxes out the local-option budget, and this money (for capital improvements) cannot be allocated to the classrooms. Stupid, perhaps, but still the law.

Then the state should yank this money and give it to a school that needs to use it for education.
