California schools angry over even more cuts
Despite Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger proclaiming this month that his proposed budget "protects education," school administrators say they will actually lose about $200 per student under Sacramento's version of new math.

Already distraught about having to make significant cuts, largely because of the loss of one-time federal stimulus funds, school administrators are furious about what they see as the governor's false promise.

"His idea of no cuts to education is baloney," said Superintendent Marc Liebman of the Berryessa Union School District. "We're looking at deficits of almost $8 million."

The numbers are similar for other districts dependent on Sacramento for the bulk of their revenue. The Cupertino Union School District faces cutting an estimated $8.8 million, Gilroy Unified $6.3 million and San Jose Unified $10.5 million.

2. They need to cut every sports program,
Then listen to them howl. Collages need their farm teams. Put all the funds into Math and Science.
Hit them were it hurts.
