Oklahoma educators struggling to make budget

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - More than two dozen Oklahoma school
districts have told the state that they can't balance their budgets
after state funding for public schools was cut by 10 percent this
month.
At least four districts have shifted to four-day weeks to shave
costs.
The budget cut isn't the only pressure on the districts. The
state normally offsets increases in health insurance costs. But the
state has included no such provision this year.
Tulsa is among districts looking at personnel cuts. Official say
as many as 100 Tulsa schools positions may be eliminated started in
July.
