FROM THIS EPISODE

More than one California governor has threatened to save money by cutting back on education only to restore funding before the next school year begins. Governor Schwarzenegger says this year's deficit requires that $4.8 billion be cut from schools over the next two years. The Los Angeles Unified School District claims a $460 million reduction would be the equivalent of closing 22 high schools, firing 5700 employees or an 8% pay cut across the board.
