Dean of Pace’s School of Education, Andrea Spencer, expressed shock and concern to WCBS TV in the wake of controversial comments about teachers and the educations system by New York City Mayor Bloomberg.
Michael Bloomberg said in a speech at MIT that he would accomplish more with less by slashing the teaching staff in half.
“When I heard the statement I was really shocked,” Spencer said in an interview with WCBS TV. “There is absolutely no evidence to suggest that half of the teachers in any system are ineffective. What there is evidence to support is the fact that larger classes really place detriments in the way of learning.”
