Yet Another School System in Big Trouble

Hosted by  • 

Education in California is likely to be hit hard if revenues don't measure up to the optimistic projections made in Sacramento when this year's budget was passed. In the meantime, Orange County Supervisors plan to use school money for purposes of their own. To balance the County budget and pay their bills, they plan to divert $73.5 million in property taxes earmarked for K-12 education. School Superintendent William Habermehl says he won't allow that to happen "on the backs of the children."
