"Numbers Become Faces": Hinojosa Talks About Friday's Layoffs And Why "It Could Get Worse"
"We're losing a lot of talent today," says the super, as you'll see above "These people have been dedicated to Dallas ISD, and they provided a lot of services that go unsung. A lot of people want to bash certain positions in the district as being unimportant, but all of these individuals provided great service to our community and to our district and to our principals and to our teachers."
The super also discusses why "time is running out" for those so-called flexibility bills at the state Legislature that would provide the district, and others throughout the state, the ability to schedule furlough days and salary reductions. In response to WFAA's Brett Shipp, the super also lights into the Lege for not addressing "the structural deficit that exists ... They are kicking that can down the road, so it's not going to go away, but some people, I guess, this is what they want."
