For once Frank Wanner …

…is partially right:

“There aren’t any simple, magic-bullet solutions. This has got to be something we dedicate ourselves to; it’s an ongoing process,” he said. “It’s a little difficult to improve student achievement when class sizes are rising at an alarming rate. We have teachers who normally have 30 kids in a class who now have classes with 40 and 50 kids. That makes it harder. At the same time, some of our politicians are not doing anything to fund education. For some of them, it’s always, ‘Blame the teacher.’ Well, it’s more difficult than that.”

Whose fault is this? (I ask rhetorically)

In Duluth’s case it ain’t all the fault of the pols.
