Across the country, thousands of teachers are losing their jobs, reports the Wall Street Journal.
Teacher layoffs are inevitable, writes EIA.
The entire United States public school system enrolled only 60,966 more students in 2006-07, yet it hired 20,564 more teachers. Twenty-six states showed a decline in student enrollment, but only 14 had fewer teachers than the year before.
Class sizes have been falling — till this year — and more teachers have been hired for special education and support services.
