BALTIMORE (WBFF) – Leaders in Baltimore City are praising Governor Larry Hogan after the first-term Republican announced an additional $24 million for ailing Baltimore City Schools. But does that money fix the deficit problem?

It certainly helps this, but what about next year? Budget deficits happen just about every year in Baltimore City Public Schools.

The big question here is: Why do these budget deficits happen year after year?

The reasons always seem to change. Is it the funding formula? The enrollment? School construction costs? There is not one reason, but rather, a number of reasons.

Over the next couple of months, Project Baltimore will flush them out.
