Utah's government is considering making high school senior year optional. Some systems in Georgia are thinking of going to a four-day school week; other districts in America are canceling bus routes or charging a bus fee. And teachers nationwide are being furloughed, meaning they're forced to take some days off without pay.
It's all because of the recession. States have less money to give to schools, so schools are cutting programs, classes and activities to make do with the money they do have. What we'd like to know is whether you've seen any of this: Have you had field trips canceled? Are your classes getting bigger? What kind of toll has the economy taken on your school?
