Move the money from battlefields to classrooms

By Arnie Alpert

In New Hampshire’s largest city, school started this fall with 150 fewer teachers and classrooms so crowded some classes had four students sitting at the teacher’s desk. Linda, a student at the city’s biggest high school, told her after-school youth group, “In my math class there are 41 kids. It’s very loud because everyone is having side conversations.” It’s pretty hard to get an education in an environment like that.

And it’s pretty hard to teach, too.
