Gary school board announces layoffs

The Gary school board has voted to lay off 110 teachers and staffers. That's a reversal of the decision board members made at their previous meeting.The cuts are due to declining student enrollment and school closings.

Fewer students mean fewer state and federal dollars for public education.

Some teachers could be recalled if federal funds come in and if there are cuts at the board's central office.
