Wolfe: Cuts would put all-day kindergarten in jeopardy

March 11, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — After learning about proposed budget cuts to school districts presented by Gov. Tom Corbett this week, Punxsutawney Area School District Superintendent Dr. Keith Wolfe said Friday that Gov. Tom Corbett’s proposed budget cuts to school districts may have placed all-day kindergarten in jeopardy.

Wolfe said he had just returned from a superintendents’ meeting at Riverview Intermediate Unit (IU) No. 6 in Clarion, and the amount of concern was astronomical.

INDIANA — Students planning to attend Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) — or any other school within the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education — should prepare for their wallets to get a little lighter in light of cuts in Gov. Tom Corbett’s proposed budget.

In his budget issued Tuesday, Corbett proposed cutting $625 million in higher education costs. If the budget is approved, funding for state and state-related schools — including Penn State, Temple University and Lincoln University — would be slashed by 50 percent.
