Dornan: Further cuts will harm students, placing NC in a Race to the Bottom (video)

Before voters go to the polls next Tuesday, John Dornan says they need to examine how the candidates intend to balance the budget next year.

The Executive Director of the Public School Forum says it is simply unrealistic for legislative candidates to suggest there is enough bureaucracy and waste in state government to cut another $3 billion in spending without it hurting individual school children.

Contrary to the perception of many, North Carolina is already in the bottom 10 when ranked on per pupil expenditures.

And Dornan worries that there is a distinct possibility that North Carolina could be at, or near, 50th place in investing in its young people when the upcoming 2011 Session of the General Assembly comes to an end.
