State Dept. of Ed laid off three after voters rejected Props 1, 2 and 3

After Propositions 1, 2 and 3, the “Students Come First” school reforms, were rejected by voters in November, the state Department of Education laid off three employees, state schools Superintendent Tom Luna told lawmakers this morning, in response to questions about the number of positions in his department. “There were three FTP’s (full-time positions) that we had to lay off as a result of the November election,” Luna said. “They were specific to programs in Students Come First. When the law and the funding went away, those positions were eliminated.”

He said the department is not asking for them back.
