The Dallas ISD Superintendent is holding a conference at this moment about planned budget cutbacks. Like the Arlington Superintendent, he is all about gloom and doom.
Above is his preliminary budget reduction plans (just announced.) $209 million dollars in salaries is a lot of salaries. Assuming an average salary and benefit of $65,000 (which may be too high or too low), that's a layoff of over 3,200 people. Or I guess you just slash the salaries of tens of thousands of employees.
Wow. He said the worst case scenario was losing 20% of the total budget and the best case was 10%.
And how would you like to be graduating this Spring with a degree in education?
