Teachers Rally To Protest Potential Cuts

Posted: Updated:

Teachers in the Sweetwater Union High School District staged a rally to protest a proposed two percent pay cut.

They say budget cuts that affect the classroom are not the answer to an $11.5 million deficit and will only hurt students.

"All jobs in education are important. We take that as a premise. However, the classroom is where the tire meets the road and where students do all of their learning and that's where we want the money to be focused on," said Nancy Cummins-Slovick with the Mar Vista HS Learning Center.

The district says board members are doing their best to minimize cuts and layoffs.
