Just looking at the first page, the numbers that jumped out at me were the student/teacher ratios. OK, we all know that schools fudge those numbers--so add 5 students to each one and we're still nowhere close to my class sizes. My contract caps my classes at an average of 33 students per class with a maximum of 36 in any particular class. That, dear readers, especially you readers outside of California, is not a typo.
The school at which I teach is ranked the highest in our district using US News' methodology. Even still, we're beyond #1000 nationally and beyond #200 in California. We are well above our district average, as determined by looking at the cumulative district data.
