One school district in the east will lose more money for its students, along with other agencies who depend on the county for funds.

On Monday night, Pitt County Commissioners decided $333,915, funds to hire teachers, will help balance the county's budget instead.

Parents we spoke to, say they feel their children's education should not come at this high price. Although all agencies in the county will remit one percent of their budgets.

Pitt County officials say they didn't have many options but to ask for the reversion. They would've had to dip deep into savings otherwise.
