WaPo's Mathews ("Job losses bad for teachers, not necessarily for education") claims that devastating the nation's teaching corps, while bad for teachers (and their families and the national economy) may actually be good for education. It will make those remaining teachers more "conscientious" says Mathews.
"Schools usually compensate for losing teachers by raising class size and giving the teachers who are left more kids to handle."Fordham think-tanker Petrilli simply puts it this way:
"Districts need to learn to live with less.”
