  •  One thing the local media in MN has (6+ / 0-)

    noted in reporting this story is that MN has one of the lowest counselor ratios in the nation (48th I think).

    We have horrific achievement gaps here despite having relatively good schools overall, and that is probably partly the reason.

    But the number the local TV station quoted last night was 1 qualified counselor per 700 students. There is no way one counselor can adequately serve that many kids.
