LAUSD Teachers To Protest $557M In Proposed Cuts, Layoffs

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Teachers in the Los Angeles Unified School District are expected to protest Tuesday as the school board meets to consider budget cuts and layoffs.

The district will discuss its proposed $6 billion budget that calls for roughly $557 million in cuts.

Adult education, preschool and elementary school arts programs are all in danger of being eliminated.

Officials are also considering a proposed plan to issue 7,500 layoff warning notices.

If approved, this would be the fourth consecutive year teachers will be given layoff notices.

    How many more people will soon not have a job? Is this countries model even sustainable and can you really see the possibility of recovery? I am not so sure.

    Keep on laying off teachers but continue building state of the art schools how does that make any sense, LAUSD hire consultants for contruction of these schools paying these consultants 2 to 3 times more than a teacher who most of these consultants don’t even have a college degree now if LAUSD realize that which I think they do maybe LAUSD employee’s should run theses construction jobs and save their livelihood.

    I can’t even get a job.That’s because that aS%hole lawyer Robert Hale from Hale and Nguyen in Brea couldn’t help me with my case. Now I’m a bitter aS$puck that has a beef with law enforcement and everybody on the internet. I used multiple screen names like [GROW..APAIR], [wg//af], [up//yours], [1stman], and [kma] so no one can track me down. I challenge people to meet me in front of the Fullerton P.D. station for my protection.

    This system is too buggy, frustrating to comment. To be quick: Make these criminals forfeit their pensions, sick time, vacation pay, and medical benefits. Ask your union leaders why this isn’t already done, so the money can go to teachers who should be there. If the conviction is overturned, then back-pay and reinstatement can be options. Fair is fair.
