Stimulus aid to stave off school cuts

By Brian Witte

Proposed reductions in state aid to Maryland schools will be more than offset by the federal stimulus measure President Barack Obama is poised to sign, Gov. Martin O'Malley said today.

Of Maryland's 24 school jurisdictions, 16 received a total of about $69 million less in O'Malley's current budget proposal, which was submitted last month, compared to last year. Prince George's County and Baltimore city received the biggest reductions, about $35 million and $23 million, respectively. [Balt. Sun]
