Teachers Picket School Board Meeting

(Las Vegas, NV)  —

(Las Vegas, NV)  —  More than a hundred local teachers picketed yesterday afternoon’s school board meeting over possible layoffs and pay freezes.  School district officials and the teachers union are now in arbitration, after contract talks fell apart last August.  The district says it needs concessions to balance its budget.  The Clark County Education Association has accused the district of hiding money to create what it calls the “illusion of a budget shortfall.”
