Parents of Spec. Ed. Students Sue Over Hawaii 'Furlough Fridays'

Hawaii may have to lay off "thousands" of education department employees, if a cost-saving plan for furlough days is blocked by a federal judge, school officials said in an article in the Honolulu Advertiser.

Today is the second of 17 "furlough Fridays" when schools will close in the state. A judge on Oct. 22 refused a legal request for a last-minute halt before the first furlough day. A hearing is scheduled for Nov 5. on two lawsuits filed primarily on behalf of special education students, the story said.
