Education Chairman Unhappy with Bloomberg’s Budget

Here are City Councilmen Robert Jackson, chairman of the Education Committee and Fernando Cabrera, who sits on both the Education Committee and Higher Education Committee [corrected].

With thousands of teacher layoffs proposed by Michael Bloomberg, it’s understandable that these guys were the least happy people walking out of City Hall earlier this morning.

Jackson told me city lawmakers “have to argue with the state,” in order to get more funding, to stave off the layoffs. When asked if any teacher layoffs would be acceptable, Cabrera told me, “None at all.”
