Sequestration Harms Classroom Instruction the Most, AASA Survey Reveals

AASA is pleased to release Surviving Sequester, Round One: Schools Detail Impact of Sequester Cuts. The survey, 15th in AASA's Economic Impact Series, details how school districts have responded to the start of their first school year operating under the deep cuts of sequestration.

The 2013-14 school year—already underway in some districts across the country—represents the first year that school operating budgets will include cuts in federal education funding stemming from the sequester (the automatic, across-the-board cuts stemming from Congressional law and inaction). As school districts across the nation kick off the 2013-2014 school year, school system leaders find themselves opening school house doors unable to provide the same educational offerings as last year. This survey reflects current budget realities for the nation’s schools, as reported by 541 survey respondents from 48 states earlier this summer.
