State Budget Shortfalls: Examples of State Responses MS Word PDF - Due to significant projected budget shortfalls for 2009 and 2010, many states are proposing short-term cuts in P-12 education spending. This ECS StateNote provides examples of potential budget cuts in five areas, including: (1) capital and building expenditures; (2) textbooks, supplies and equipment; (3) salaries and benefits; (4) staffing of non-teaching positions (at the local and state level); and (5) instructional and support programs and services. The report also indicates where funds are being added or reallocated, and where states are considering creative approaches to preserve or expand P-12 education programs and services.
