Flint School Board Votes To Cut Teacher Pay And Increase Class Size [Video]

Flint School Board
WJRT

The Flint School Board made some unpopular choices Monday, as they struggled to make up a 19 million dollar shortfall.

The least popular parts of the deficit cutting plan include less pay for teachers and bigger classroom sizes.  The board is talking about cutting pay by nearly 20 percent and adding as many as 5 students to each classroom.

In the end the school board members voted to approve a deficit elimination plan that calls for a 19-percent reduction in wages and compensation for all employees as well as job cuts in order to meet class size targets.

It means closing buildings and outsourcing maintenance, technology, clerical and technical support as well as substitute teachers and security services.

Some of these changes could start to be put in place within the next 30 days.

Obviously something has to be done to get the budget under control, but this plan leaves a lot of people scratching their heads.  Most people opposing the plan are wondering how the cuts could possibly help the students.
