Pasadena, CA — New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has plans to fire teachers as part of his plan to close the budget deficit for the fiscal year 2012.

There are 75,000 teachers in the New York City's public schools, out of which 4,666 will be laid off and another 1,500 teaching jobs eliminated by attrition. This is part of Bloomberg's plan to eliminate the budget deficit.

Bloomberg's budget of $65.6 billion also includes reducing capital spending by 10 percent over the next 10 years and cutting down another 1,000 to 1,300 city employees. He says that's the cuts are necessary because of a $4.4 billion reduction in aid from the state and federal government and his budget will be able to cover this deficit.

Bloomberg's plans have drawn strong criticism from the city's unions. Michael Mulgrew, president of the United Federation of Teachers has said that Bloomberg's plan seems more of a political game. Bloomberg has said that since this is his final term he feels free in taking on the public sector unions.

EducationCrossing CEO A. Harrison Barnes says that cuts in K-12 education are being planned across most states. ''If you love teaching, then you should probably be ready to move. Because there are lots of teacher jobs in other places. Every town needs a few teachers.'' EducationCrossing is a job aggregator site and has been able to find 8,000 teaching jobs.
