Chicago Public Schools to lay off 2,110 teachers, support staff

CHICAGO The Chicago Public Schools has announced the layoff of about 2,100 teachers and support staff, blaming the move on the failure of the Illinois Legislature to enact pension reform.


The layoffs announced late Thursday are in addition to the approximately 850 layoffs in June the district attributed to the closing of about 50 schools it considered underutilized.

Among those laid off are 1,036 teachers, the remainder are support staff, including teacher assistants, food service employees and janitorial staff.


School district spokeswoman Becky Carroll says the district is facing a $1 billion budget deficit, much of it driven by a more than $400 million pension obligation.


Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis expressed surprise at the number of layoffs, saying she expected the number to be closer to 800.

Well, at least Karen Lewis can take comfort in a couple of Twinkies again.

They weren't needed. 75% of the black kids dropped out after failing gym class.

The animals are from the from the fine city of Comptom. They were home schooled. They read at an 8th grade level. Her daddy graduated from the 8th grade. Taught her to play with balls and read children's books.

"Price's five daughters: half-sisters Yetunde, Lyndrea and Isha Price, and full sister Venus. When the children were young, the family moved to Compton, California, where Serena started playing tennis at the age of four. Her father home-schooled Serena and her sister Venus[18][19] and to this day, Serena Williams was and remains coached by both her parents."
