Seattle Public Schools Increase Costs While Losing Students

The Seattle Times reports:
Costs are going up, and the number of students is going down, but Seattle Public Schools plans to increase its staff by 102 jobs next school year and use $12.6 million of its savings to do so.

It's a plan that Steve Sundquist, chairman of the School Board's finance committee, calls unsustainable but responsible.
Only in the public sector.A truly great moment in public education.
