The governor's budget called for about a $500,000,000 cut to education, including slashing levy equalization and I-728 for class size reduction.

Then the budget deficit got bigger, and we heard that the cut to schools could be about an even billion.

Last week at a union meeting I was at the number being bandied around was "between 1 and 2 billion dollars."

Today, this shows up in my email, from the WEA:

On Monday, the state Senate will release a budget that cuts K-12 and higher education by more than $2 billion.
That's not much of a way to start spring break.
