Just what the BEEP is happening in Duval County?!?

Budgeting can never be easy in this time of limited
resources and priorities have to be made but with that being said, what the
BEEP is happening in Duval County?!?
Last year we need extra security, testing coordinators, more
assistant principals and reading coaches and all we had to do was sacrifice the
districts librarians. Fast-forward a year and it turns out we don’t need those
things as much as we thought we did as they as well as three hundred support staff
are on the chopping block. Throw in hundreds of teachers being surplussed and
the district announcing it plans to ignore the class size amendment then what’s
going on?
It seems like the district is making a concentrated push to
save millions and millions of dollars but to what end? No really to what end?
The QEA board is supposed to pay for those initiatives so what are all of the
savings above going to?

Even during the height of the recession there wasn’t
this much churn in staff and I for one am very concerned.
