School systems across Alabama are slashing their budgets once again. Gov. Robert Bentley declared proration for education Monday night.
Bentley says the education fund is facing a $165 million shortfall, which means schools must cut 3 percent from their budgets. That’s $9 million for Mobile County, and $3 million in Baldwin County. The good news is, both school systems say they have the funds to cover it, so teachers and students won’t face anymore cuts. However, next year is where officials say things could take a downward turn.
