Menino pushes e-readers in $2.4B budget

Boston Herald – “The city would hire 100 new firefighters and cops, and 64 teachers, open five new teen centers and boost library services — including lending popular e-readers for the first time — as part of a $2.4 billion budget proposed today by Mayor Thomas M. Menino. City spending would increase by $60 million in fiscal 2013, under the mayor’s proposed plan, with the School Department seeing a $26 million increase — the largest for any city agency. The boost for schools would cover new teachers and improvements including new science labs at the Hyde Park Education Complex and new sites for New Mission High and the Boston Community Leadership Academy.”
