Job cuts in DeKalb County system wouldn't include any teachers

More than 200 DeKalb County (Ga.) school system employees may lose their jobs so that the budget-strapped school system can save money. The proposal by Superintendent Crawford Lewis includes three different options on how to shed those jobs, which range from mid-level administrators to groundskeepers to drivers’ education instructors. The job cuts could come as early as soon as December. The job cuts deliberately avoid elimination of teachers as well as other schoolhouse employees such as janitors and media specialists.
