Teachers shout – “Save our jobs”

Posted by Texas Education on September 26, 2008

Well, I managed to work today, but got home early, still much going on nationally, state wide, and locally. The Dallas News has something a bit disturbing. Was really hoping we would not see this type of atmosphere, but it’s a comin’:

Dallas teachers won’t go without a fight

About 300 teachers wearing red shirts marched outside Dallas ISD headquarters Thursday, chanting “Save our jobs” and “Where did the money go?”

Teachers said they are paying for the mistakes of an administration that created the budget shortfall.

“Why should we lose our jobs when it’s their fault?” asked Jesus Serrato, a third-year kindergarten teacher.

When Mr. Serrato goes to work each morning at Northeast Learning Community, the possibility of losing his job lingers in the back of his mind. At home, he and his wife, who is also a teacher in the district, spend their dinner conversations consumed with fears of losing their jobs.

“It doesn’t matter how much I love my kids, because I don’t know if I’ll be employed next week,” Mr. Serrato said.

Yikes, this does not look good at all. Here for the full story.

  1. I have a post on my blog entitled. “I was just wondering…”

    I was just wondering why DISD superintendent Michael Hinojosa has not resigned or been fired.

    I was also wondering why the Dallas ISD owns 6 airplanes and 3 helicopters. Maybe they could make up some of their shortfall by selling them.
