School Officials Concerned About Governor's Budget

Educators say schools and universities are in the cross hairs of Governor Beverly Perdue's proposed budget.

State lawmakers visited Jones County Monday to hear concerns from school board officials on the 2010-2011 budget.

The state's budget is expected to be one-billion dollars short, leaving area schools without certain funds.

Class sizes may increase and jobs may be cut.

Hopes are the value of education will not be sacrificed.
Michael Bracy is the superintendent of Jones County Schools.
"The expectation is that public schools and children are first. They've got to be the priority."

This is just in its preliminary stage. The budget is in the senate and they will look at it to see what can be done.
