"Something’s going to have to give,” says Liz Margolis, spokesperson for the Ann Arbor school district.
This fall, kids in Ann Arbor are coming back to schools with 34 fewer teaching positions, and nine fewer staff positions.
That means fewer reading intervention specialists, administrators, secretaries, facilities workers and lunchroom staff.
Carving out $8 million from this year’s budget was “severe,” says Margolis.
And it’s already having “direct impacts on our classroom."
