Job uncertainty hurting teacher retention

The constant threat of job cuts for DCPS teachers is forcing many of them to leave the District's public school system for other jurisdictions, according to WTU president George Parker.
"They say, 'Listen, you don't know from one year to the next whether you're going to have a job here,' " union President George Parker told The Washington Times last week.

For the second year in a row, the more-than-4,000-member union is facing the prospect of deep job cuts because of an unexpected shortfall in the school system's budget.
