Teachers on the Edge


Author(s):
Abstract:
The budget crisis is affecting Durham Public Schools. Durham may lose twenty million in state and local funds which should cost the district as many as 323 jobs, including 237 teaching positions. Carla Brown talks about being told she will lose her job as a teacher at Northern High School in the summer. Class sizes will increase and teacher training will be reduced if the school loses its funding. The school board has asked the county commissioners for funding to save teachers’ jobs, but the city is planning cuts for all departments.
