Cut Deep: How the Sequester Will Impact Our Nation's Schools. Report of Findings
Ellerson, Noelle M.
American Association of School Administrators
This study, released in July 2012, is the thirteenth in a series of studies by the Amerian Association of School Administrators (AASA) looking at the impact of the economic recession on the nation's schools. Unlike earlier surveys in the series, though, this survey focused on one particular aspect of the recession: sequestration. This fiscal policy of across-the-board cuts to federal spending would cripple education funding, which has already taken disproportionate cuts at the federal, state and local levels. Survey respondents deliver a clear message to Congress about the need for clear action to avoid the drastic cuts, weigh in on the importance of making information about the sequester available, and detail how the cuts--expected to be eight or nine percent reductions--would impact their school districts.
