Hundreds of Montgomery Teachers Will Receive Pink Slips

Montgomery, Alabama – Pointing to a pending budget shortfall, the Montgomery County Board of Education is giving some grim news to hundreds of area teachers.

The board will not renew contracts for 650 non-tenured teachers. The school system is facing a $28 million dollar budget shortfall.

Last month, the Montgomery County Board of Education voted to close three area schools by the end of the year because of the budget.
