Teachers' union angered over cuts in school spending for the Bronx and city
Outraged teachers' union leaders announced Friday that Bronx and city schools will lose millions due to budget cuts.
Union officials say the Department of Education cut $100 million from school spending, which means less school supplies, bigger class sizes, less teachers and a reduction in after school programs.
Walton High School is slated to lose $1.5 million from its budget, and IS 162, PS 87 and MS 201 will start the school year with hundreds of thousands less than last year.
The Department of Education says it's regrettable that the United Federation of Teachers would resort to reporting inaccurate announcements.
