Melissa Whitler reports for Southwest Voices Staff shortages are stressing Minneapolis’ Patrick Henry High School. According to documents outlining plans for vacancies at Henry High, “two math departments have been canceled due to a vacancy in the math department. (Math teacher Connor) Wells says these cancellations have led to combination of sections, and larger class sizes in the remaining sections … This year, he said, many departments have 34 or more students. In some departments, he says, there aren’t enough seats for each student, or students are sitting elbow-to-elbow. Wells said some students refuse to come to class when they show up to see how full the class is.”
