A special Little Rock School Board meeting has been called this evening for a vote on Superintendent Linda Watson's proposals to cut $10 million from the budget in response to a sharp drop in enrollment. There are likely to be differences if the cuts fall more heavily on classroom workers than administrators.
I expect some members of the board to object (with good reason) about calling a special meeting with such short notice on votes that could affect dozens of jobs and several schools. The agenda posted gives no clue what, precisely, the superintendent will propose. The board has already resisted several of the ideas.
