I read Dennis Wyatt's column ("Now that they've laid off 209 teachers, what is Manteca Unified doing next?" – Friday, June 26, 2009) and wanted to make you aware of the correct dollar amounts and restrictions to those dollars as I believe the premise of your opinion was based on some inaccurate information.
