Growing number of students, declining number of teachers

by Andrew Maisel

Do we have a problem?

According to data from the National Center for Education Statistics, between 2008-2015 we have:

  • More students. K-12 enrollment up more than a half million students, and
  • Fewer teachers. The number of K-12 teachers (public + private) employed is down 110,000 over the same period.

These trends combine to produce larger class sizes. Larger class sizes don't necessarily produce weaker students, but they generally don't help.

Bottom-line: Keep your eye on these trends in your school district. Our children will be competing in a global, knowledge-based economy when they finish school
