Open Quote It appears that the teachers are handing out A's like candy to low performing students to up the overall stats so they regain all of their cut funding. Incomplete homework, late assignments, and one paragraph essays will get you an easy A in almost any class. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
