A Correction

That's right, when I make a mistake, the correction is right there in the regular flow of posts. No hiding your mistakes at Half-Bakered!

In this post, I said that the combined budgets of the City and County school systems was nearly $2 billion. And that the cuts proposed by the County Commission would amount to roughly 1.7%

Well, I was wrong. The City Schools budget is $743 million. The $10 million proposed cuts amounts to 1.4%. The County Schools budget is $276 million; their proposed cut is $12 million, or 4.3%. That last is a not-insignificant cut, especially compared to the City's.

Sorry for the error and I'm glad to correct it.

Until next time, that is all.
