There has been a lot of scary news about school districts around the country receiving less money than they have in the past. In our district, that has created a sense of doom and gloom among teachers, both tenured and non-tenured. Everyone now looks at each other wondering if that colleague could be the person that bumps them out of a job. Lunch conversations have changed from the excitement of the upcoming school play to asking when each person was hired and where on the “ranking” list they may be, and which licenses they hold.
Is there anyone else experiencing a similar situation? I am curious how other schools are dealing with the impending cuts.
