I am not sure that I would cut anything. I would require that teachers pay a portion of their health care costs like all other employees. I am a manager (non-represented) at a local school. Over the ast three years, my salary has been cut 5%, I have received no cost of living raise the past three years, and we now pay $250 per month for our health care. The classified staff are in a similiar situation, but pay less in health care costs and have seen their salaries by 3%. The teachers have given nothing back. Instead of cutting a program of staff, cut the cost of benefits or salaries of teachers.
So, I do answer your question, what am I willing to cut from school budgets? I would cut the salaries and benefits of teachers, first. After that, I would cut the number of teachers and increase class sizes
