Veteran School Board Member Discusses Plans to Save District Money

Audio

Aired 4/19/09

Maureen Cavanaugh: As California legislators continue to wrangle over how to close a $40 billion budget shortfall, it's almost certain that state education funding will be cut. San Diego Unified, the largest school district in the county, is anticipating a $50 million cut in its budget this year. In order to make up the bulk of that expected shortfall, long-time school board member John de Beck has proposed a plan that includes shortening the school year, and having school board members work for free. De Beck says he doesn't like having to make such a proposal, but he thinks it's the best of a number of bad choices.
