You know, if you really think it's just a gaffe to have to go through every school in the city and start firing teachers, then maybe 5 percent is about right.
The school board voted to do nothing at its meeting, refusing to authorize any layoffs until it knows more about the process. Trustee Ron Price vowed that before he agrees to anything, he will know the ethnicity of every individual to be canned.
I do believe, if I am not mistaken, that Price's words are a prescription for a general political bloodbath. And that's not a gaffe.
