U.S.: California jerks around its teachers with preliminary pink slips

  • 26,500 teachers received pink slips before the Sunday deadline to receive them. California’s public education system needs to swallow $8 billion in budget cuts, but many of these pink slips will likely be rescinded. They must be having fun right now.
  • 15,000 school support staffers – bus drivers, janitors, secretaries and administrators – also received preliminary pink slips. A number of teachers and other staffers wore pink to school on Friday to protest the slips. source
