Funding Cuts In Benton Harbor Could Be Larger Then Expected

In tonight's 16 focus on education, cuts in state funding could be devastating for the Benton Harbor school district.

Superintendent Paula Dawning tells our partners at WSJM radio the cuts could actually be $185 per student.

Not the $125 Governor Granholm announced last week.

Dawning says a conference later this month will determine the actual amount.

The cuts are set to take effect June 30th, if the state legislature does not do anything.
