This Conversation is with Potsdam School Superintendent Pat Brady who talks about the financial situation Potsdam Central finds itself in during this year of limited state funds, the 2% tax cap, the federal sequester, and rapidly rising costs for health care, pensions and salaries which are crippling burdens for 60% of the state's school districts.
Brady discuses how these all affect the local school budget with Ann Carvill, a former Potsdam Board of Education Member, and Donna Seymour of the St. Lawrence County Branch-AAUW. Many public schools are facing fiscal insolvency which is resulting in educational insolvency
The North Country Matters civic partners working to educate North Country residents about critical public policy issues facing our region include AAUW-St. Lawrence County, the League of Women Voters of St. Lawrence County, and Clarkson Media and Mass Communication students who provide the technical expertise for the productions.
