FOX News Talks About Dallas ISD Teacher Buyouts By Interviewing ... Fort Worth Teacher
On a related note, several Friends of Unfair Park and other concerned parents wonder what will happen if some campuses lose more teachers than expected (per the Potential Reductions by Campus chart handed out two weeks ago) following the buyouts for which teachers lined up this weekend. I asked DISD spokesman Jon Dahlander, who writes:
Much of it depends upon the flexibility that may or may not be allowed by the state. For instance, class-sizes for elementary schools are mandated to be 22-1. That may change depending upon how legislation advances. If elementary class-sizes go up to 25-1, that will dictate the number of replacement teachers per grade at each campus.Also, I see that trustees have called a special board meeting for tomorrow at 5 p.m. at 3700 Ross. The only item on the agenda: "Discussion of 2011-12 Budget Development Process."
