The folks at Certification Map created this infographic in their blog about the how much states have cut their education budgets in the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 school years along with its impact in certain states. It is interesting that five states (including my native South Carolina) cut their education budgets by more than 10% in and 13 others made some form of education budget cuts in 2008-2009. That number jumped to 14 in and all but nine states made some form of education budget cuts in 2009-2010. Certification Map claims that states have cut over $15 billion 2010 from 2009. It will be interesting to see how much more will be cut in 2010-2011.
