Eye On Boise

'No easy decisions'

Supt. Tom Luna said he hopes the cuts he's outlined won't all be necessary. "I hope during the coming weeks we can work together to find ways to reduce the cuts I've laid out." He said, "No one will agree with these ideas." But, he said, "This is a budget that will accomplish our goal - to reduce the public school budget in 2010 without harming student achievement." He added, "In times like these there are no easy decisions."

Responded JFAC Co-Chair Maxine Bell,  "We don't like this either." After a 15-minute recess, Luna will take questions from lawmakers on the budget committee.
