Columbus schools' immigrant program has too few teachers, state says
from The Columbus Dispatch
A surging immigrant population has pushed Ohio's Columbus City Schools' main program for students with limited English skills over capacity, with too many students per teacher, a state Department of Education report says. Recently, the district had assigned 825 students to its Columbus Global Academy in the former Linmoor Middle School. District spokesman Jeff Warner said the 96,000-square-foot building in the South Linden neighborhood is not over its permitted capacity. The district lists its optimum capacity at about 850, and its maximum capacity at around 1,300.
