Greenfield Disappointed By Massive Child Care Cuts In City’s Budget

| |

In light of Mayor Bloomberg’s massive proposed cuts to child care programs in his preliminary Fiscal Year 2012 budget, Councilman David Greenfield sent a letter to yeshiva administrators on Sunday explaining what these cuts will mean for their yeshivas and child care programs.

Greenfield explained that, in order to close the city’s projected $4.58 billion deficit, the Mayor has announced a series of deep cuts to essential services including cutting 6,166 employees, most of whom are teachers, from the Department of Education, permanently closing 20 firehouses, shuttering over 100 senior centers and reducing 16,500 child care slots.
