San Diego Unified is facing a $124 million budget deficit and says cuts are needed. Next Tuesday, the Board will vote, and then they'll start eliminating positions and handing out pink slips. The final decision on the number of cuts won't come until june when the state approves it's final budget. SDUSD Superintendent Cindy Marten joins NBC 7's Politically Speaking to discuss.
An NBC investigation into police on campus takes a closer look at the impact they're having on students, some who are getting arrested for their behavior.
