Cash-strapped districts cutting summer school

Heather Hollingsworth (AP) reported in the Deseret News, May 24th that many school districts across the nation are cutting summer schools because of budget cuts. Kansas City district gutted its summer school program this spring. Across the country, districts are cutting summer school because it's just too expensive to keep. The cuts started when the recession began and have worsened, affecting more children and more essential programs that help struggling students.

Both Ogden and Weber have summer school programs that are continuing this summer.
