BALTIMORE — Some Baltimore City school employees are about to lose their jobs.
The district wouldn’t say Friday how many workers are being forced out. Officials said the cash-strapped school system does not have enough money to balance the budget.
Tammy Turner, the acting schools CEO, sent a letter that read, in part, "I cannot express how difficult this decision is for me and everyone involved, because we know it will result in the loss of talented, committed employees."
Marietta English, the president of the Baltimore Teacher's Union, said the news caught her off guard.
"No one has said anything to me about we are going to have a reduction of force," English said.
