We all love teachers …

… but Reason makes a good argument that more of them hasn’t helped, at least not overall.  Or maybe it’s not so much the teachers, but the non-teachers:

  • Maine had a decrease of 10.8 percent in student population yet increased its non-teaching staff by 76.1 percent.
  • South Dakota lost 3.9 percent of its student population yet increased non-teaching staff by 55.4 percent.
  • The District of Columbia lost 14.8 percent of its students yet increased non-teaching staff by 42 percent.

I suspect that the big reason for this is probably federal mandates pushed by people who really, really love teachers.

Good manners would suggest an explanation for/and of the format change.

That’s okay if ya’ll don’t, I guess. Readers don’t count. Just ask the New York Times, or Newsweek.

We’re still testing and rolling out some aspects of this. Unfortunately, some aspects have to be tested live. We’ll have an announcement by tomorrow.
