Anticipated cuts to the state budget have hit public education hard, with educators anticipating devastating effects on schools.

The 2008-2009 California Budget, put forth by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, will take roughly $4.8 billion from programs serving the state’s 5.9 million students.

“The budget cuts have drastically affected school supplies,” LasHonne Mitchell, an English teacher at Pomona High School said.

Mitchell said that she spends around $3,000 a year from her own pocket on classroom supplies.

Mitchell uses overhead transparencies to save paper, which she said is in short supply.

“The real problem is not receiving enough resources to accomplish (needed work) in the classroom,” Mitchell said. Budget cuts, she said, will tax an already maxed-out system.
