Joplin R-VIII cuts2003-05-20 10:16:45anon


I'm very confused as a few Sundays ago the Globe identified that although Webb City and Carl Junction are losing a significant amount of dollars per student in "projected" State cuts that are not final yet - they are not cutting programs, their alternative schools or employees. Joplin is losing the "least" amount per student (less than $1 million total?) and they are cutting a significant number of programs and employees. I would like to see someone post the specific facts as to what the last 5 years income and budgets were compared to the projected 2003-2004 budget, and the specific programs and jobs being cut - not just numbers, but locations, specific jobs and impact on class size, security, etc. THANKS!
