A couple of weeks ago the local rag, The Daily Times, published the names of the teaching assistants that were laid off. Sam Duck sent me a link to this article that says “several” were cut, but a majority of them were hired back to other positions. Several is a meaningless term because it can be 5 or 100.
Looks like there really wasn’t a shortage of funds in the $81 million since they were able to hire a majority of the “several” laid off.
Paper shuffling makes for a good PR stunt.
This article says 11 of 22 will likely be rehired. 6 had quit.
