Numbers for Budget Decrease

Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan Schools / District to cut 144 full-time positions, ran in The Pioneer Press.

The story uses numbers referring to how many jobs are being cut, how many dollars have been cut and what percent of dollars will be cut.

There are many numbers used but it is not overwhelming, the numbers are used to give a clear picture of the decrease in funding.

The use of amounts as opposed to percentages is effective because the percentage alone would not give a clear picture of the effects of the budget decrease.
