As students across the nation head back to school, The Takeaway presents a special report on education this week. Today, we focus on budget cuts. As states continue to take in less revenue, public schools around the country are seeing their budgets slashed. It's the principal's job to examine a budget, and distribute available funding in a way that's in the best interest for the students.
Ben Shuldiner, principal of the High School for Public Service in Brooklyn, New York, and Mark Wilson, principal of Morgan County High School in Madison, Georgia, talk about how principals make tough budgetary decisions when there's little money to go around.
