This book offers an independent analysis of the New York City education budget for 1981 by the Educational Priorities Panel (EPP). It represents an alternative to the mayor's budget, which calls for $89 million in cuts, and the board of education budget. The first two chapters contain background information on the EPP and an explanation of the base budget. Chapter 3 details those cuts the EPP feels should not be made, either because they include direct service cuts, or they represent proposals that will not produce the estimated savings. Chapter 4 discusses proposals in the mayor's budget that the EPP feels should be implemented. Also, it contains additional proposals for administrative savings. The final chapter offers suggestions the city of New York can use to restore $34 million to the executive budget. Included is a discussion of five potential sources of revenue. (LD)
