We had another good #nysutchat Sunday night as local union tweeters offered specific examples of the impact of budget cuts enacted by lawmakers in April.
Tweeters weren’t content to just leave it there, as the discussion veered into developing plans of action at the local and state levels for next year’s budget. Interesting stuff.
As promised, here’s a link to Sylvia Saunders’ article in the November edition of NYSUT United with even more examples of how districts are paying the price through sacrifice – and how high-need districts have been hit hardest by cuts.

More from that issue will be online later today, including the related cover story on “The Great Divide,” and how income inequality is hurting the economic recovery.
