stevil -- here's where I got the figure, and no classroom at BLS or BLA has two teachers, and for what it's worth they don't have a full time librarian, a book that isn't held together with tape and elastics, or lightbulbs for the classroom overhead projectors, they are lacking handsoap, the paint is peeling, heat is a luxury. As someone else mentioned, when the per-pupil spending is taken as as average it sounds nice, on par with the suburbs, when you peel back the top layer and realize that in actually one kid with special needs gets a much larger slice of that pie while another kid at an exam school gets just a bite of the pie you get a different perspective.
