Jennings proposes more budget cuts for Minneapolis schoolsby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
Outgoing Minneapolis Schools Superintendent David Jennings is proposing $23 million in cuts to balance the district's budget. Nearly 500 people, including 250 teachers, would be laid off under the plan. Jennings is leaving his post at the end of this month now that a successor, Thandiwe Peebles, has been named. Morning Edition host Cathy Wurzer spoke with Jennings, who says this is the fourth year in a row that the district has been forced to cuts its budget.
