teacher jobs, teaching jobs, education jobs, school job Pasadena, CA, April 12, 2011 – School districts across the country are still giving out layoff notices and debating budget cuts for the next school year.

Most school districts have been saying that nonteaching staff and administrators will be targeted first rather than teachers. But hundreds of teachers in Connecticut have gotten layoff notices. The remaining teachers will be facing bigger class sizes and fewer resources this fall.

Joseph Cirasuolo, executive director of the Connecticut Association of Public School Superintendents, says that most communities are planning a zero-increase budget and there is going to be no increase in the state money. This means that cuts are inevitable. So far, around 700 public school teaching jobs have been eliminated in Connecticut. Most of them have been eliminated through a combination of retirements, attrition, and layoffs.

Thomson School District in Colorado is planning to eliminate about 50 teaching positions. The reason is again budget cuts. Garden Valley school district in Idaho is also planning on eliminating 47 positions, with at least 18 of them being teaching positions. Local media reports from across the country show a similar picture
Whitehall-Coplay School District in Pennsylvania is facing a deficit of $2.7 million. The board announced in a meeting that cuts would be inevitable. Similar scenes are being played out across the country where boards announce cuts in meetings attended by concerned and often times protesting parents, teachers, and students.

EducationCrossing, a job aggregator site focusing only on jobs in the education sector, has been able to find almost 9,000 teaching jobs across the country. Most of these jobs are in subjects such as math and science.openings, educationcrossing.
