A drive to avoid teacher layoffs

May 10, 2009|Ruben Vives

More than 100 parent members of the activist group ACORN, along with students and teachers union members, held a forum Saturday at the Miguel Contreras Learning Complex in downtown Los Angeles to kick off a statewide campaign to underscore state-level reforms needed to avert teacher layoffs and class size increases.

In the short term, organizers want Los Angeles Unified School District officials to use federal stimulus money.

Organizers also want to have eliminated the two-thirds vote requirement for passing the state budget.
