 A few months ago, Governor Patterson decided that teaching centers should take a 37.5% cut for the current year and a 50% cut next year. An uproar ensued as many teaching centers had already spent the money for the current year and didn’t have it to give back. Governor Patterson’s response was that teaching centers are non-essential and will receive no funding next year.
What does that mean for you? If teaching centers are eliminated from the budget, it means there will be no more in-service classes offered at a minimal tuition and there will no longer be a location for colleges to offer courses at reduced tuition off-campus. In addition, teachers will lose their voice as to what classes will benefit them.They say that something good always comes from something bad. Perhaps public awareness for the value of teaching centers is one of those benefits
