Flint Schools Agree To Cut 91 Teachers In A Budgetary Move [Video]

Flint Teacher Cuts
WNEM

Monday night the Flint School Board agreed to a plan to cut 91 teachers in order to help get Flint Schools out of debt.

The move is the result of shrinking classrooms, and a looming $10 Million dollar debt facing the schools.

Nobody is happy about having to make the cuts, but Interim Superintendent Larry Watkins has basically switched Flint Schools in to survival mode.  He told WNEM:

“In order for the district to survive and flourish, this is what we have to do.”

The news doesn’t get any better for the teachers who survived the massive layoffs.  The board also agreed that remaining teachers will take a 19 percent pay cut, lower health benefits and fewer sick days.

What do you think the Flint Schools will look like 5 years from now?  Let us know in the comments below.
