L.A. Unified Facing 7,300 Layoffs

The Los Angeles Unified School District  OK’d a plan to send layoff notices to 7,300 teachers and other staff this week to help close a projected budget deficit, according to the Los Angeles Daily News.

The nation’s second largest school district faces a nearly $400 million budget shortfall.  Layoff notices will go to classroom teachers, social workers, nurses and counselors.

“This is the worst thing I’ve seen after 42 years in education,” Los Angeles school board member Richard Vladovic said.
