Sequestraton Impact on Schools

Sequestration is a national issue which usually doesn’t affect local/state funded schools.  However, the Washington Post has published an article on the impact of sequestration on states and it looks like Head Start, Title I dollars and special education will be hit.  This is right when we are looking to expand early childhood education, our urban schools have been hit hard by state cuts and will be devastated by losing federal dollars.  Read for yourself.  http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/special/politics/sequestration-state-impact/
