How many teachers are being let go to pay for Duval County’s new lawyer

I received this note from a friend tonight: Had my first unfortunate situation with DCPS today. Budget shortfalls are causing the newest teacher to be let go. Avery will be moved Friday with her class to another classroom. Why they do this a month into school is beyond me. And I LOVED her teacher. Spending, spending all around (courthouse anyone?) but they can’t keep a first grade teacher. Highly disappointed…

The county just spent 200 grand, a little more than what three teachers would have cost on a new lawyer.

We have to put what limited resources we have in the classroom, not the ivory tower.
