DID YOU KNOW? 82 percent of districts nationwide will cut or eliminate education jobs in 2010-11 and 53 percent will freeze hiring. Based on these survey results, the American Association of School Administrators (AASA) estimates that the national total for education jobs cuts will be 275,000 in 2010-11, representing 92 percent of the 300,000 jobs saved by ARRA. Additionally, every 100,000 education jobs lost translates into roughly 30,000 jobs lost in other sectors due to reduced spending by schools and those laid off. Collectively then, 275,000 education job cuts will translate into an additional 82,000 job losses in other sectors, bringing the total job losses to 357,000. This was sent out in our association newsletter this morning. A little scary when you think about how education ties into the rest of the economy.
