Teachers Are Being Laid Off...
Some of you have inquired about purchasing a home near areas of great schools with high school rankings and I applaud you for considering your child's education as a top priority.
That being said, the rankings reports you find on line might not be what you will experience when you move here into that great home with great schools. Not because the teachers aren't great, but because of overcrowding.
Teachers around the valleyÂ in Phoenix, Glendale, Scottsdale as examples are on the brink of of loosing their 1st and 2nd grade teachers with budget shortfalls.
What this translates to is moving those students in with the other classrooms.
Fewer teachers, more students, you get the picture.
A great way to stay on top of these kind of current issues is to subscribe to local news channel e mail updates where you can read all about the drama.
I'll be posting another blog demonstrating these links to local news channels.
In the mean time, be weary of school ranking sites. The numbers may not be what they seem.
All the Best!
