All Things Not Created Equal in Teacher Layoffs

Hosted by

LA Unified has sent pink slips to thousands of teachers. Individual schools will receive a total of $270 million in federal stimulus money to buy back jobs as they see fit. But not every school will get the same amount of money. Title I schools, where 40% of the students are poor enough to qualify for the school lunch program, will get $1000 per teacher. Non-Title I schools will get $195.
