Turmelle offers Florio in his own words on video

The NHRs Luther Turmelle offers this post-budget vote article that includes a video of the Superintendent of Schools in his own words. He explains that his proposed reduction of 17 teaching positions is based on the Council's adopted budget. In other words, the BOE reduced his proposed budget by $950,000 and the Council reduced the BOEs proposed budget by $360,000... and that $1,300,000 reduction led to the Super's proposed budget changes... which includes a total of 17 fewer teaching positions.

The teachers union and their spendaholic supporters have no one but themselves to blame for the impending teacher layoffs. First they demanded a 13% (4+% annual) raise (oink oink), then they refused to consider concessions (oink, oink, oink). So now the pigs, er chickens, have come home to roost.
