United Teacher of Los Angeles protests School Board approval of RIFs
United Teacher of Los Angeles protests School Board approval of RIFs This round of layoffs would increase class sizes (including 29 to 1 in K‐3), increase student‐counselor ratios to 1,000 to 1, and drastically reduce the number of school nurses and librarians. Cuts this deep will severely limit our ability to meet students’ most basic needs.
UTLA will not stand by and allow our students’ educational program to be dismantled.
The Southland’s largest school district, like many others in the region, is moving forward with teacher layoffs.
About half of those notices will go to managers who hold teaching credentials. Most of the rest will go to elementary school teachers, nurses, librarians and counselors.
