As the school year winds down, Superintendents focus on next year’s budget (video)

House budget-writers resume work on Tuesday, with educators keeping a watchful eye on efforts to restore funds to public schools.

Wake County Schools Superintendent Tony Tata says over the last two years his district has made $75 million in cuts, and now needs state lawmakers to make additional funds available as the district grows by another 3,000-4,000 students.

Tata joined us over the Memorial Day weekend to discuss the impact of state budget cuts, the loss of federal Edujobs money, and the district’s student reassignment plan.
