Furthering the Race to the Bottom


Faced with another year of potentially deep budget cuts, California’s public schools have sent out 22,000 pink slips to teachers and school employees, according to the state’s superintendent.

“Our state budget crisis has forced districts to lay off thousands of teachers over the past few years,” said Jack O’Connell, the state superintendent of public instruction. “The governor has proposed cutting another $2.4 billion from public education. While the education community opposes these cuts, our schools are forced to prepare for this potential outcome by issuing a massive wave of potential layoff notices.”
