Bethlehem middle schools cutting teachers’ team time

Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, will schedule middle school teachers to teach an extra period next year.  Steve Esack, of the Morning Call, reports that budget cuts caused the elemination of teacm teaching at middle schools, “a highly lauded, decades-old philosophy in which middle school teachers across disciplines meet during the day to integrate curriculums and address academic, social and family needs of students.”

“But Bethlehem is disbanding teams next school year because it can’t sustain them after it lays off more than a dozen teachers at Nitschmann, East Hills, Northeast and Broughal middle schools,” according to the Morning Call.
