Some BHHS Students Sound Off Regarding Teacher Layoffs

Benton Harbor High School students are sounding off regarding the latest round of pink slips dished out in the district. English Language Arts teacher Jason Wolf, along with five other teachers, was recently laid off.



Three different students spoke Tuesday defending Wolf. They also turned in four full-sheets of paper with signatures asking for his reinstatement. Superintendent Dr. Leonard Seawood spoke of the cuts.



About 80% of the district's cost is made up of salaries. Seawood says cuts need to be made to follow the Deficit Elimination Plan, if not the state will do it for them.
