From AZCentral.com -
The Scottsdale school board laid off almost 250 teachers, administrators and staff during an emotional board meeting Tuesday that brought some administrators and board members to tears.
It wasn't just Scottsdale losing teachers and other educators, though. Others include -
Litchfield Elementary - 78
Gilbert - more than 400
Tucson - 600
Apache Junction - 49
Mesa - 500
Flagstaff - 300+
There are more, too many more, but you get the point.
There will be *many* more notices going out in the next week or so.
Too reiterate something that has been said before this - votes have consequences.
I attended two rallies at the state capitol in support of education in AZ. Some of the teachers in attendance told me that they were Republicans.
I told them that if this year didn't convince them to give the Democrats a chance, it should at least convince them to become more active Republicans.
By doing so, they would be in a better position to make sure that their party produces candidates who are more interested in protecting the interests of their constituents than they are in imposing an extremist ideology on the state.
