Schools may not fare well in Daniels' budget

Schools may not fare well in Daniels' budget: "Don't be surprised if a two-year state budget Gov. Mitch Daniels plans to propose tomorrow includes no overall spending increase for public schools.

'Protecting education at today's levels would be a huge achievement when revenues are plummeting or are down significantly,' Daniels said last week. 'In many states right now, education is being cut, and I mean 2, 4 and 5 percent.'

But Daniels will have a fight on his hands if he indeed proposes to keep school funding at today's level in the two-year budget lawmakers will draft during the session that starts Wednesday."
