Layoff mounting at many of the schools

Tiss the season, well unfortunately for many EDU staffers this holiday season has begun with an ax.  Many of the schools have begun laying off employees and according to sources many others have them in the works. 

The University of Phoenix has laid off roughly 700 employees as it grapples with declining enrollment and changes in the way it compensates admissions counselors.  The layoffs, mainly affecting admissions personnel, were announced in meetings with affected employees across the nation, said Ryan Rauzon, a spokesperson for parent Apollo Group.
