1,400 teachers getting pink slips in Broward County
The Broward County School District is giving pink slips to about 1,400 teachers this week as it struggles with a $144 million budget shortfall, district officials confirmed Monday. Notices are going out Tuesday, according to the district. Teachers losing their jobs are primarily first- and second-year teachers who don't have continuing contracts, said Pat Santeramo, president of the Broward Teachers Union.
