"One of the Darkest Days in the History of the Dallas ISD."

A Friend of Unfair Park whose school lost one of the 375 teachers laid off yesterday by the Dallas Independent School District sends this blog entry from National Education Association-Dallas president Dale Kaiser, which was posted Thursday evening. The gist is below. --Robert Wilonsky

Today, October 15, 2008 is one of the darkest days in the history of the Dallas ISD. Dark for the 463+ or 350+ employees, depending how DISD does their math, who are losing their jobs today. Dark for the other employees and their families who have lost their jobs already. And, most importantly, dark for the thousands of students who have lost their teacher and now must start Monday with a new one.
