Oregon schools pack in most students per teacher in history!!

Oregon’s student-teacher ratios, long some of the highest in the nation, rose to dramatic new highs of about 22 students per teacher in 2012-13, the state reported last week. Check out the exact numbers in my chart below.
The national average for 2011-12, the most recent figure available, was 16 students per teacher, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. That suggests that Oregon teachers, on average, shoulder about 35 percent more students than the typical U.S. teacher.
