Eden Prairie's Class Sizes Being Reduced

September 9, 2007
The Star Tribune http://www.startribune.com/106/story/1385839.html reports that the Eden Prairie school district is planning on hiring 9 more teachers and keep 10 that were planning to be cut, making class sizes smaller. This will reduce the class sizes for all grades, Kindergarten through 12th grade.
This reduction will cost the school district, and tax payers, nearly $1.2 million, but educators believe it is worth it.
The district enrolls close to 10,000 students every year, and the district has a budget of about $100 million a year.
