New Survey: Are Budget Cutoffs and Layoffs Affecting Your District?

I'm really alarmed about what seems to be happening around the country in terms of thousands of teacher layoffs. Arne Duncan has predicted as many as 300,000 teachers will be pink slipped, and I think that number is conservative. 17,000 educators have been pink slipped in Illinois and 22,000 in California alone, and I'm guessing no state will be left untouched. I'm curious about how this is affecting people in my personal learning network and am planning a blog post on this topic. Help me out by sharing your thoughts in this Twitter survey.  Thanks! I'll let you know when I post my findings and thoughts.
