The New Sane..

Evidence that crazy is the new sane.

Principal Sarah Abedelal credited under-utilized Brennemann's high test scores to its low class sizes. Then she insisted the school could do as well with twice as many students.

"Size does matter, but when you look at effective teaching, effective teaching strategies, you can teach students double that size," said Abedelal.

This is the sort of thing you have to say to be a successful striver in the modern education reform movement. You have to adopt a certain level of schizophrenia, and you have to deliver the message with a facial expression of absolute confidence.

Actually, why stop at double? With effective strategies, you could quadruple class sizes. Maybe she's saving that for the next round of the Hunger Games.
