The effects of the economy

It's a difficult time for parochial schools all over the country these days as famlies have less and less discretionary income for education. But a lax economy affects public school districts as well as tax revenue decreases. I was speculating with another teacher the other day as to what will be the biggest change to occur first in education due to lack of resources.

An article out of California suggests that class sizes will get bigger.

I also suspect that "specialists" will be phased out as well and teachers will be asked more and more to have the ability to teach a class with students that have a wide array of abilities. We'll see if that turns out to be true.
