S.D. Schools Brace For Budget Cuts

S.D. Schools Brace For Budget Cuts
San Diego's public schools brace for more cuts while some local districts leave federal funding on the table. Why is San Diego Unified School District the only big California city school district not applying for the federal grant?

GLORIA PENNER (Host): This is a rough time for school districts throughout the state. Funds from a financially troubled California have been cut and cut again. So school boards must come up with leaner and leaner budgets, which means larger class sizes, smaller staffs, and limited programs.
