Los Angeles education officials are asking the city's teachers to agree to six furlough days to save about 3,200 teaching jobs, keep school libraries open and help the school system balance its budget. However, the teachers union says the latest budget proposal by Gov. Jerry Brown should allow the city to rescind all of the nearly 7,000 layoff notices issued to school employees earlier this year. "No [layoffs]. No cuts. No furloughs. That is our plan," union President A.J. Duffy said.
