The Washington Examiner (3/7, Gartner, 93K) reports that DC "Public Schools is planning to increase class size in its middle and high schools, and cut funding for special-education coordinators." The Examiner adds, "Next school year, each middle-school teacher will oversee 22 students instead of 20, and high-school teachers will take on 24 students instead of 22." DC Mayor Vincent Gray said that he intends "to increase per-pupil funding for the schools by 2 percent."
