    the good news about sequestration

    is it is going to mostly hit the red welfare states, education doesn't matter much to the rednecks anyway.]
    FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — Public schools everywhere will be affected by the government's automatic budget cuts, but few may feel the funding pinch faster than those on and around military bases.

    School districts with military ties from coast-to-coast are bracing for increased class sizes and delayed building repairs. Others already have axed sports teams and even eliminated teaching positions, but still may have to tap savings just to make it through year's end.

    But there's little hope for softening any future financial blows.

    "Next year is scarier than this year," said Sharon Adams, chief financial officer for Muscogee County schools in Georgia. The district serves the U.S. Army's Fort Benning and could lose $300,000 in federal funding out of its $270 million in general funds before the end of the school year — and more than four times that in 2013-2014.
