Pink Slips: Education Secretary Modifies Sequester Comments

duncan3

This morning in Washington, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan clarified a statement (see video at bottom) last week regarding whether teackers would receive “pink slips’ as a result of automatic budget cuts under sequestration.  More substantively, Secretary Duncan stood with school administrators from across the country who will be impacted by sequester cuts.

They were:

Marc Jackson, Superintendent, Silver Valley Unified School District, Yermo, CA
Deborah Jackson-Dennison, Superintendent, Window Rock Unified School District #8, Fort Defiance, AZ
Dennis Jarrett, Chief Financial Officer, York County School Division, Yorktown, VA
Susan Smit, Superintendent, Wagner Community School, Wagner, SD
Henry Strom, Superintendent, Mt. Adams School District, White Swan, WA
Ron Walker, Superintendent, Geary County Schools 475, Junction City, KS

The Education Secretary and the education professionals were frustrated as they told reporters of the many ways their districts will be impacted as a result of a loss in federal funding.

  1. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and
    let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy that I stumbled across this during my search for something concerning this.
