The Arizona State Schools for the Deaf and the Blind cut 22 positions at two campuses to help meet requirements by Gov. Jan Brewer that all agencies cut their budgets by 15%. The layoffs included 10 instructional positions. One University of Arizona professor who trains special-education teachers said teachers already handle large caseloads. "That means teachers are being asked to serve larger numbers of students, who aren't getting the intensive services they need."
