However, when I taught middle school in another district I had the same budget
($3000- $3500) and 500 students, but I dont think the numbers are comparable.
I say this because I only had students for 10 weeks at a time in the middle
school. Therefore, the $ per student ratio is not a fair comparison. I was
just as well off budget-wise in the middle school.
