$120 million program is “zeroed out” in preliminary 2012-13 spending plan

From The Los Angeles Times: A proposed budget for the Los Angeles Unified School District allocates no funds in 2012-2013 for the Division of Adult and Career Education. As the budget process moves forward, the figures may be adjusted and some spending may be restored, but for now, it has stoked the fears of adult students and their teachers and spotlighted how vulnerable they are.
