Pasadena, CA — Over 6,000 teachers in New York City's public schools are going to lose their jobs soon as part of the government efforts to reduce costs.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's plan for tackling the city's fiscal crisis includes axing over 6,166 teachers and education professionals. The New York City Department of Education will also see its budget being slashed by $350 million.

Bloomberg is planning across the board cuts in government spending and some cuts will take place immediately. But the cuts are expected to continue until the end of the 2012 fiscal year. The total number of job losses is expected to be a little over 10,000 city employees.

The school district is in the news recently because of Mayor Bloomberg's choice for the post of Schools Chancellor. His candidate, Cathie Black, has no experience in the education sector and has spent her career in the publishing industry.

The New York City Department of Education is the largest school district in the country in terms of student enrollment. It has 1.1 million students taught in over 1,600 schools. It has a budget of $17 billion and around 80,000 teachers and teacher assistants.

CEO A. Harrison Barnes of EducationCrossing says that this is part of the nationwide trend in cuts for the K-12 system. ''From California to New York, states are trying to reduce their education expenditure. And the first choice is always schools, and within that, it's the teachers.'' Barnes' firm has been able to compile a list of almost 34,000 education related jobs so far.
