The White House claims thousands of jobs are at stake with today's beginning of a federal sequester, automatic cuts in most federal programs.

-- About $7 million in general education funding is at risk, putting 100 teacher and aide jobs in jeopardy.

-- Disabled children's education programs would lose $9.2 million.
