Have any of you heard about what is going to happen in Yonkers, NY? They are
letting go, as of Dec. 1st, approximately 502 individuals in their school
system. Around 45 art teachers and 45 music teachers are loosing their jobs.
Even the sports program has been eliminated...no football team for example.
Crazy. The city is in financial trouble but I fear the consequences. Even many
security guards and custodians will be let go. Has anyone experienced anything
like this in their states? Eileen in Westchester (By the way I went for a
general interview in Yonkers but then decided not to send in my application and
stay where I am. I'm so lucky I didn't switch.)
