 Cutting class will surely get a school student in trouble. But when the government chooses to cut class for them, it puts a kid in an even worst predicament.

The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities has revealed that 26 states will be spending less than they did the previous year on their students.

Alaska, Alabama, and Washington lead the way spending $200 less on their students. States like Texas, Illinois, Ohio, Louisiana are also on the list. The 24 states that are increasing funding may appear to be doing well, but many of them still fail to offset the cutbacks they implemented in previous years.
