Mt. Diablo school employees to rally against closures

CONCORD, Calif.

Hundreds of public school employees from the Mt. Diablo Unified School District plan to protest tonight outside the school board meeting where members will discuss the possible closure of another school.

District officials already agreed to close Glenbrook Middle School and Holbrooke Elementary School next fall. Board members now have to decide on a third school, either Silverwood elementary or Westwood elementary.

The public school employees claim that the district is using the excuse of budget cuts to destroy the unions and collective bargaining.
