Funding for education has been an enormous topic for the past decade and lately headlines like these above are common especially in Indiana. As of September 2010 over fifty eight,000 teachers and different schooling employees have lost their jobs on account of short fall in the funds (Delaney 2010). Northeast Indiana (which consists of 14 counties) has closed over 15 schools from elementary to high school to make up for shortages in funding.

As soon as again. BS.
