Gov. Corbett cut the school district’s 2011-2012 state funding by $8.4 million, a decrease of 15.7 percent, forcing the school to furlough staff and eliminate programs that work for students. This year, the governor proposes to cut even more.

Facing a nearly $19 million budget shortfall, York City School District continues to struggle to educate its students.
