YOUR TURN: Unhappy about the layoffs


This week's "Your Turn" segment comes from the Action News 5 Facebook page. Memphis City Schools laid off almost a hundred teachers this week and that sparked a lot of discussion among our viewers. We chose a letter from Carolyn Berretta.

In her words:

This is crazy -- laying off Memphis City School teachers. The classrooms are already overcrowded and the children are out of control. What do you think this is going to do for the ability to teach children and the morale of the teachers who are left? As much as I hate to say this, teachers should strike until they are heard about the conditions they have to work in. I know several teachers and it is not about money but rather dedication and love of children.

That's Carolyn Berretta's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email or call 800-465-1210.
