Budget Woes Cause Oklahoma School Districts To Trim Teachers
TULSA, Oklahoma - Schools Oklahoma districts statewide are trimming teachers in the coming week, in order to compensate for a smaller education budget in the fall.
Lawmakers have planned a flat state budget for education but that translates into cuts because federal money for schools is running out.
That's forcing schools to cut teachers, and some programs, to make up the difference.
The parents' organization has set up a website, 49th is not OK, which references Oklahoma's education rank among others in the country.
