LEVITTOWN - A number of teachers attended tonight's Levittown Board of Education meeting wearing all black to protest the district's plan to lay off more than 100 teachers.
The $200 million budget, approved in May, calls for 108 teachers to be laid off.
Some residents say that they feel duped by the board since they did not give enough details about the budget before putting it to a vote.
Levittown United Teachers, the union representing the school?s teachers, says something should be done by the board to try and prevent all the cuts.
Union President Therese Rogers says the board itself is to blame for the current budget issues facing the district.
