"Donna McDaniel, legislative committee chairwoman for Athens City Educators, said before the meeting the bill would definitely hurt the city system. She said teachers have cut everything they can cut and the community has done what it could to help keep schools operating. At this point, she said, schools will receive no library money for the next four years, no textbook money for four years, no professional development for four years, decreasing classroom-supply money for three years (last year teachers received $135 per teacher), no money to schools for common supplies for four years as well as higher student-teacher ratios, which could be detrimental to the system."
