This paper reports that the Education Program funding for 2009-2010 in the September 2009 budget update is about $128 million less than the funding allocated in the February 2009 budget announcement. As public-school funding comprises 95% of all Education Program Funding, this will have a significant impact on public education budgets. Instead of a 73.2-million-dollar funding increase to Education Programs as announced in February 2009, Education Program funding decreased by $54.8 million in the September 2009 updated budget. After accounting for the transfer of $50 million in CommunityLINK funding to the Ministry of Housing and Social Development, there is still a funding decrease of $5 million since 2008-2009 and $78 million less funding than was allocated in the February 2009 budget.
