Under pressure: Class sizes in Shrewsbury causing teacher headaches, achievement gaps

Shrewsbury - Oak Middle School English teacher Derek Pizzuto is, to put it mildly, frustrated. After a series of personnel cuts in Shrewsbury schools, there are less teachers to go around. Less teachers means a higher teacher-student ratio and less time to work individually with students. A lack of teachers also means there's no one to help students produce a yearbook or advise a photography club. And now, student achievement appears to be suffering in Shrewsbury schools. "We'se at a crisis point where teachers and administrators are doing all they can," Pizzuto said. "We'se working past the boundaries of what can be. I's seeing more and more teachers looking burnt out."
