Here's a link to my full story in today’s Spokesman-Review on the school budget cuts proposed Thursday by state Superintendent of Schools Tom Luna. Lawmakers were mostly receptive to Luna’s proposals; even local school officials said they don’t see any way to avoid some cuts. “I don’t know if I agree with all of them until I dig in and see what the ramifications are, but I know they’re necessary,” said Hazel Bauman, superintendent of the Coeur d'Alene School District. "It's just a tough time for everybody. We've got to stay strong and stay united."
