Cincinnati schools laying off teachers
Declining enrollment and a budget shortfall are costing some Cincinnati public school teachers their jobs.
The school board voted last night to lay off 116 teachers over the summer. The district had offered voluntary severance packages as part of a move to trim 25 million dollars from the budget. Nearly 400 of the district's 3,000 teachers took the packages, but that wasn't enough. Enrollment is falling in the district, which has just under 37-thousand students.
In Cleveland, public school officials are sending layoff notices to 470 teachers as part of a cutback to avoid a budget deficit.
