Report: Wisconsin students will be in more crowded classrooms

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin kids who return to school next week are likely to be in more crowded classrooms than those from 8 years ago.

The Wisconsin Budget Project is out with a new report showing the numbers of public school teachers dropped by 4,300 statewide, in a seven-year period ending in May of 2012.

The group cited figures from the National Center for Education Statistics, showing that Wisconsin had 15.5 students for each teacher in the 2011-12 school year -- up from 14.3 students per instructor in the 2004-'05 term.

The numbers seem to back up what the state's education agency reported recently. It said the Badger State had almost 101,000 full time staff members in the last school year -- from administrators to teachers to support workers.

That was about 3,000 fewer than 5 years earlier, at a time when enrollment rose slightly.
