(INDIANA STATEHOUSE) - Governor Mitch Daniels says the state will reduce funding to K-12 schools by nearly $300 million in 2010.

The 3.5% cut will be applied evenly to all school corporations using the current funding formula.

Daniels said with half of the state budget allocated to K-12 education, cuts became unavoidable.

Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Bennett insists school districts can find the savings without trimming teaching staff.
