There's one school in Pennsylvania that's facing such big budget cuts that there may only be one answer: 'Auction' it off on eBay.
The Learning Centers in Pennsylvania is putting itself up for 'auction' on eBay to help offset their budget shortfalls. The listing, which has since been pulled from the site, had a starting bid of $600,000. According to this tongue in cheek post, the winner wouldn't have owned the school but would have won a naming opportunity, a free large pizza, a school coffee mug and the chance to speak at graduation - the best opportunity to give a group of kids an education that they could use.
The school hopes to raise enough money to make sure it can remain open in the fall. Its school district is facing a reported $2 million deficit.
This morning on "Starting Point," CNN education contributor Steve Perry weighs in on this story, and says this is a creative way of shining light on very real, very serious budget challenges that many schools face across the country.
