The simple answer - it's a government operation. The longer answer - employment is being cut by less than 3% to decrease the student-to-staff ratio to less than 7.25 to 1 (from roughly 7.38 to 1 this school year), and between the contract and inflation, the increased costs more than eat up the job cuts.
They're filling the empty seats with robots, to increase test scores.
There are a lot of fixed costs that remain steady or increase (energy, for example) regardless of student enrollment.
Thanks Jay...I assumed that. But it enrollment drops by nearly 3000 students, isn't some sort of saving found there that could be applied to those costs?
Yah--there's a savings--it's called closing/selling buildings.By the way, what NON-public school system operates on a 7.25/1 admin & teacher-to-student ratio?
