High school football fields, basketball courts and band-rooms across Baldwin County could be quiet this school year. The recession could force the board of education to take drastic measures to save money. Teacher layoffs, a hiring freeze, larger class sizes and the elimination of support staff are already an unpleasant reality. Now, extra-curricular activities could be on the economic chopping block.
Does anyone have suggestions for how the school board can reduce waste and focus on keeping quality teachers in the classroom?
