Seattle’s schools are going through anotherround of budget crises. This time, it’s a projected $20 million shortfall in the 2006-2007 school year. It looks as though the school district may be forced to close some schools to help close the budget gap.
Meanwhile, in other news, cityofficials (registration required for the second link) are still gung-ho to replace the Alaskan Way Viaduct with a tunnel—a project that is likely to cost city residents somewhere in the vicinity of $4 billion.
Which, by the way, is enough to close a $20 million school funding gap for 200 consecutive years. Just thought I’d mention it.
