Budget Breakdown: School Profile

Listen Now

Budget cuts mean bigger class sizes in schools across the state. We’re hearing from our Public Insight Network about this. As part of our Budget Breakdown series, Pat Mack went to Ponderosa High School in Parker to hear what teachers and students say about having more students in each class. The school is in Douglas County, which has the highest average income in the state. Ponderosa High had to cut its budget by just more than ten percent for this school year - the third straight year of cuts.
