From GoLocalProv.com by Julia Steiny, GoLocalProv MINDSETTER™:
Last year on March 1, the town of Woonsocket RI, laid off all its public school teachers, spreading considerable misery around town.
The year before that, also on March 1, Providence pink-slipped each of their nearly 2,000 teachers. And, as is usually the case with RI's winter layoffs, every single teacher was hired back again by fall.
The year before that, Central Falls got national attention by laying off its high school teachers on, you guessed it, March 1.
