Metro Schools want super-big budget increase!

Metro school board approves $723M education budget
Tuesday, April 10, 2012 at 11:38pm, By Joey Garrison, City Paper 
Director of Schools Jesse Register’s proposed $722.9 million education budget received unanimous school board approval Tuesday night and is now set to go before Mayor Karl Dean’s administration.

As expected, the Metro school board voted 8-0 Tuesday night to approve a set of budget priorities for the 2012-13 fiscal year that amounts to a sizeable $48.9 million increase over the current fiscal year. Clearing Tuesday’s hurdle, the budget will next be the topic of discussion April 13 as part of the mayor’s budget hearings as Dean’s administration prepares an operating budget for Metro.(link)

 I don't think there can be any doubt that Mayor Dean is going to push for a tax increase.
