Hundreds of NJ teachers receiving pink slips
Hundreds of educators across the state are receiving pink slips due to Gov. Christie?s education cuts, but News 12 New Jersey has discovered a pink slip doesn?t necessarily mean a teacher will be laid off.More than 400 teachers received pink slips in Howell and more than 200 teachers got pink slips in Paterson. Every non-tenured teacher in Wall Township was given a pink slip.Some of the teachers that receive pink slips will still be offered positions in the fall. However, until each district settles on a budget, it can't be determined just how many will be offered positions back.
Pink slips must be sent out under law, even if the district's budget isn't finalized. If a district doesn't give a teacher a pink slip by tomorrow, it must offer the teacher a position for next year.
