The state's mandatory four percent reserve ? Do as they say not as they do.
The governor maintains that the budget "is projected to remain balanced for the foreseeable future." That depends on what one means by balanced.
The future forecast shows only tiny reserves. Forget about the rainy day account voters were promised back in 2004 in exchange for approving $15 billion in one-time borrowing. The requirement can be suspended by an executive order of the governor. Not surprisingly, there's no money in the account, and no one in Sacramento even talks about it anymore.
What about unfunded state liabilities for employee retirement programs that now total $181 billion.
Welcome to the real world. People move, enrollment drops,or maybe the folks in Calaveras have figured out we dont need to breed 2.5 kids per houshold, at any rate you have to combine and make cuts. This has been occuring in regular cycles elsewhere for many years.
There has never been a valid reason why Vallecitos continuation school could not have been housed at Bret Hart.
Get over and through it, there are far more important problems in our country to be concerned with.
Wasn't Prop 30 suppose to put a stop to the teacher layoff threats?
It is a no brainer.....instead of laying off 6 teachers, lay off 2 administrators, the same amount of money will be saved and no one will miss them.
