The article covers what is happening in the South Bay schools. I don't know that it will change anyone's minds, but it shows where things are heading. It really doesn't look like much else can be cut from these schools so it's all going to be about getting funding from the state, local communities or salary negotiations. It's concerning we've let things go this far without doing better for our kids.
"Alum Rock Union also has notified all 49 of its managers and principals, in addition to potentially cutting 53 teaching jobs."
"Last year, the Cupertino Union School District avoided both an increase in class size and huge teacher layoffs because its staff took a week of furlough and the community raised more than $2.5 million. But this year, the district is ready to cut more than 92 teachers and counselors."
