Gandhi won't certify D.C. teacher contract

By Washington Post editors

The District's chief financial officer told the D.C. Council Friday that he cannot certify the proposed teachers' contract as fiscally sound because the city has yet to demonstrate that there is enough money to pay for it.

Natwar M. Gandhi told the council that city officials face a $28 million gap in funding the contract during the current fiscal year and a $135.6 shortfall through 2013. In recent days, he said, school officials have made progress, and recommended savings and other measures that would partially close the gap. But it still leaves the contract under-funded by $10.7 million in the current fiscal year, he said.
