Reading the article in The Sun ("Balto. Co. high schools plan cuts," March 14) was not the way I wanted to start my day. My husband and I have five children. Next year, four of them will be at Towson High School, and I am greatly disturbed to see that we will lose the services of 9.5 teachers.
According to the article, Baltimore County intends to cut almost 200 teaching positions in its high schools. Class sizes are already too big and with these cuts the average sizes will grow even more, up to an average of 29 students per classroom. If that is the average, we all know that means that some classes will have 30 or more students.
