Changes over the past six years

In the past six years, the school department of the City of Worcester:

  • has cut $58.1 million
  • has lost 18% of its staff
  • has closed 8 schools and one program
  • has had the supply budget per child cut from $130 to $35
If you have numbers to add to this (or, indeed, anything!), send them along and I'll add them.
