Alhambra adult ed faces final days

One week after Mary Torregrossa received an award honoring her for excellence in teaching, she received a final notice telling her she was losing her job, the Pasadena Star-News reported. The English as a Second Language teacher had one of 27 full-time positions that were eliminated this spring when the Alhambra Unified School District cut its adult education program. Schools Superintendent Donna Perez previously explained to the Alhambra Source that the decision to cut the program was one of practicality dealing with a time of limited resources. “In crisis times difficult decisions have to be made about where to make budget cuts. Since adult education falls outside of K-12 education, reductions are going to affect them,” she wrote in an e-mail. “The Board of Education and administration are trying to keep budget cuts as far away from the K-12 classrooms as possible so that our students get the best education possible and student achievement rises.” The program will conclude next month, but students and teachers are not going without a clamor. On May 11th, about 100 teachers, students and their children protested against cuts to adult education budget in front of Alhambra Unified School District, Sing Tao Daily reported. Amongst them was Torregrossa, a teacher of 25 years, who had received her award three days before. “I love teaching,” she told Sing Tao. “Now I’m laid off and I don’t know what to do in the future.”
