Pink Slip Terrorism

“Precautionary” notices were sent out to 26,000 California teachers this month informing them that they may be out of a job next fall. Many of these jobs could be saved by June if voters approve a spending package in a special election in May. Federal stimulus money may help.

Year after year teachers and education support professionals go through the process of being pink slipped. This terrorism must end.

The Sacramento City Unified School District can find the resources to keep these teachers employed. San Diego Unified School District did it.

Stand Up For Schools and stand up for demoralized teachers who go through this process. Call or e-mail your legislator today.

Further reading: California needs to replace about one-third of its teaching workforce, about 100,000 teachers, over the next ten years due to retirement alone.
