Youngstown school board calls on Congress to avoid education cuts



Published: Tue, November 27, 2012 @ 9:16 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — The city school board approved a resolution tonight urging Congress to amend the federal Budget Control Act to avoid cuts to education.

Lock P. Beachum Sr., school board president, said school board organizations across the country, including the Ohio School Boards Association and the Council of Urban Boards of Education, have urged local school boards to pass such resolutions.

Superintendent Connie Hathorn said every school district would lose federal education dollars.

Education is among the program cuts included in the fiscal cliff that’s imminent if members of Congress can’t reach agreement on the budget by year’s end.

The education cuts would affect Title I,

teacher-quality state grades and programs for students with disabilities and at economic disadvantage.
