TRURO - The Chignecto-Central Regional School Board could be looking at some serious cuts if the province doesn't agree to increase funding for public education by at least 3.6 per cent later this spring.
Education cuts looming
Group says if province doesnt up funding, cost would be the equivalent of eliminating Grade 2

The way I see things is that if we even knew how or what the school board was spending money on in the first place we could probably come up with something of a solution, but its browbeating to try and gain access to all the figures as an average person. We should be able to have access to hard figures as average people on what our government is spending , and where they are spending it so we can as citizens make educated suggestions on just how the budget can be manipulated to ease financial strain on its resources. No matter how much money you throw in a pocket there’s really no point if you don’t know where the hole is or how big that hole could possibly be.

Do not raise taxes to pay for this increase. Everyone says that the provincial government needs to hold the line on spending. This means all need to hold the line including teachers and school boards. The hospital workers should have been made to limit their wage increases as well.
Same old story, every body but me. I live on a fixed income and cannot bled much more in the way of tax increased.

How come whenever we hear from the school board, they always reduce the number of teachers and calssrom resources - but yet never reduce their management and bureaucratic expence.
We're headed for a situaiton like the dept of fisheries where there are more civil servants than actual fishermen fisherpersons lol
Its all rich.
