Next week, education budget cuts will cause 530 school aides to be laid off, even if their schools can afford to keep them on.
The Department of Education says there are currently more aides than jobs.
While no school that budgeted for an aide will lose the position, union rules may force individual aides could be replaced by those with more seniority.
Can someone explain this? Seriously, I can't understand how we have fewer teaching jobs when the student population is constantly increasing. Oh wait, this goes along with building towers but closing firehouses...
