NDP warns of school cuts: Report

The Nova Scotia government is telling school boards across the province to prepare for a possible $196 million in budget cuts over the next three years, according to a CBC report.

The Nova Scotia government is telling school boards across the province to prepare for a possible $196 million in budget cuts over the next three years, according to a CBC report.

The CBC says the figures are contained in an Education Department planning document that was given to school board officials last month.

The news report says the total includes boards absorbing $20 million a year in cost pressures such as higher electricity, fuel and labour costs.

Education Minister Marilyn More told the CBC the boards have to understand the financial pressures the province faces.

More also said no details have been finalized.
