Trends in Georgia School Staffing 2001-2012
Differences in the severity of instructional spending cuts by public school districts across Georgia are depicted in a series of breakout maps to accompany the FRC Brief “Trends in Georgia School Staffing 2001-2012.”
The maps underscore the report’s finding that the spending reductions cut across geographic regions as well as urban, suburban and rural districts.
The map on the left shows overall cuts in instructional spending with 72 school districts implementing cuts of about 15 percent or more (2008-2012), and on the right, the subsequent loss in teaching positions (school years 2009-2012).
