Lay-Offs in East TN?

    I am wondering if East Tennessee is having issues with
    having to lay off teachers. I know that school budgets are
    getting slashed across the country, but Florida is laying
    teachers off every year. Last year, my county laid off 400
    teachers. Is East TN experiencing lay offs as well? A
    friend of mine was laid off in Asheville, NC last year, so
    I am wondering if TN is the same way. Thank you so much for
    the input!!
