Major Cuts at State School

The Arizona State Schools for the Deaf and the Blind may lose more than $8 million as a result of cuts in state spending, after already cutting more than $2 million from this year’s budget. School administrators are expected to present the governor a plan for cuts by October 23rd. They are proposing an increase classes to six students for each teacher and an end to stop field trips and sports programs entirely. Most of the students at the Tucson facility are deaf.
