Ala. education budget cuts second worst in the nation

Posted: Updated:
(WTVM) -

Alabama's budget cuts to kindergarten through twelfth grade education are the nation's second worst since the beginning of the recession.

This is according to a report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

The nonpartisan group says Alabama's investment in K through 12 education has declined 20 percent since 2008, when adjusted for inflation.

Only Oklahoma has deeper cuts to education.

The study says the cuts in Alabama would have been worse if not for federal stimulus funds.
