RETRACTION: Monday night on Fox News at 9, we mistakenly attributed a quote to an SAISD employee named Chief of Staff Tiffany Grant.

We reported that she said, "teachers are stupid" at a school board meeting about teacher job cuts.

Miss Grant was not the person who said it. It is important to us to get our facts straight. We have high standards to bring you only the truth.

Hundreds of parents and teachers came out Monday's SAISD Board Meeting to protest actions being taken to address a $31 million deficit in next years budget.

At the meeting the board voted to end the employment of 25 teachers and two other employees.

In total, more than 130 school employees were asked to retire or were terminated by the end of this school year.

Hundreds were at the meeting protesting the decisions made by SAISD and several dozen took to public comment during the meeting.
