The reduction of 300 teaching positions is putting strains on Department of Defense Education Activity (DODEA) schools around the world, Stars and Stripes is reporting.
Agency officials at DODEA justified the cuts by saying the funding would be used for other programs. But the union that represents DODEA teachers said the cuts were made even though funding for the activity remains the same as before. With the cuts, teacher-student ratios are now 1-to-17 at middle schools and 1-to-25 at DODEA’s largest high schools, Stars and Stripes reported.
