Huberman: CPS school class size to return to normal levels

Sun-Times:
Chicago's public school elementary class sizes are expected to be restored to normal levels and high school classes will increase to only 33 instead of 35, thanks to a bump of new state money, Chicago Schools CEO Ron Huberman said today.

Huberman combined the good news with a full court press calling for teachers and other unions to voluntarily forgo scheduled 4 percent pay raises amounting to a total $135 million.

That sacrifice would fill more than a third of the system's remaining deficit of $370 million, Huberman said.
I wonder how he is able to afford smaller class sizes if allowing that only costs more money, especially if you have to staff these small-classes.
