Schools Facing Budget Cuts And An Uncertain Start To The School Year

May 19, 2020

With the COVID-19 pandemic impacting state budgets, Ohio schools are facing $300 million in cuts to K-12 education. Cincinnati Public Schools will see its funding cut by more than $8 million at the end of the state fiscal year on June 30. As Ohio's third largest district, it could also see enrollment grow significantly this fall under the pandemic - but will classes resume in-person or online?

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss what the district faces are Cincinnati Public Schools Board of Education Members Eve Botlon and Mike Moroski; and Roselawn Condon Early Intervention Specialist Hollie Finley Miller; and North Avondale Montessori Teacher Nico Love Stiles.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
