California’s War on Public Education

California schools cut 15,000 teachers and $1 billion from their budgets last year, according to the Sacramento Bee, which amounts to a 5.5% statewide reduction in the teaching payroll. However, the state teaching payroll was also slashed 3% the previous year, while 40,000 teaching jobs and more than $20 billion have been cut over the past four years.

2. That's a pretty inflammatory title, especially since the actual title of the article is...

..."California and Sacramento-area teachers took pay hits last year."

I say this as collateral damage in California's effort to stabilize its finances. It's an informative article, BTW...
