Alfredo Velasquez, SCC School Supt.,says the State of Arizona continues to struggle financially.  He says the current legislative session is looking at ways to balance the State’s budget and education support has taken some significant hits which effects students directly in the form of larger classes, fewer extra-curricular activities and less teacher resources. He says Governor Brewer’s current budget proposal would take away $300,000 in educational support while the Legislature’s proposal earmarks over a million dollars in cuts to education.
