Oakland Press: Budget Cuts Loom For Schools

The Oakland Press has done a very nice job in presenting a summary of what Oakland County schools face regarding budget issues. I won't repeat the whole article (which you can read here) but a quote by Vickie Markavitch sums it up:

“What has happened is the economy has fallen out from under us,” said Vickie Markavitch, superintendent of Oakland Schools. “If nothing is done, you will eventually have schools probably with shortened days and a very reduced curriculum."

The challenge is multifaceted but one thing is clear, costs must be cut because revenue (regardless of the source mix) will remain down for the foreseeable future.
