“RIF Now, Pay Later”

July 8, 2011

cross-posted from the SOS March Blog

The following video was directed by Bob Arnold, a teacher at Roy Romer Middle School in Los Angeles. The school faces a 25% reduction of its staff because of budget cuts. This video incredible on a number of levels– it’s a beautiful testament to the talent of the school’s teachers and students, as well as an incredible demonstration of unity in the face of short-sighted public policy. Well done, RRMS– and here’s hoping it’s NOT too late to save your teachers and your school.

    Powerful video. RIF is hurting the children. Education for all public school children – RIP (Restricted Iniative Program).
