Limited Space a Burden on Fairfax County Teachers

Lack of classroom space forcing Fairfax County teachers to use carts.

Fairfax County teachers are facing new challenges beyond lesson plans or wayward students.  Now, it's finding adequate classroom space to teach according to a Washington Post report.

Increased enrollment in Fairfax County schools has forced teachers to migrate from several classrooms daily, using carts as makeshift workstations to transport their materials.

With overcrowded classrooms, teachers have no other recourse but to adopt this mobile classroom system.  The Fairfax County School Board is facing an impending $130 million deficit in 2014, which puts the administration in a bind to build more schools around the area, and create optimal work spaces for teachers and ideal learning environments for students.
