Springfield City Schools has approved the elimination of 50 positions and now the district is looking at which employees could potentially face layoffs. The board voted Thursday, Feb. 26, to eliminate the positions as part of $1.9 million in budget cuts. School officials said the cuts are "absolutely necessary" in order to balance the budget. About half of the jobs on the line are teaching positions. Board members said getting rid of teachers was only approved after examining all other options.

Just a drop in the bucket for what is needed.

Reason #animated counter to homeschool.
