Mike Luckovich makes a good point in his editorial cartoon about education in our country. It seems that every year class size grows while teachers are laid off, resulting in less attention and help for students and teachers spread to thin to effectively do their jobs. The success of a student is directly linked to the caliper of teacher and the amount of help a student is able to receive. Today in our overcrowded classes students are not able to get the attention they need and so I believe we will begin to see a direct effect of teacher lay off rates to student drop out and diploma rates in the future. None of this is good for anyone involved and if we do not stop the problem and invested in education now we will inevitably fall behind the rest of the world. Education is key to America’s survival and well-being for the future we should really get on the ball with this one!
