The rantings of a teacher who retired from the classroom but not from education.

A school offers 2 classes with 100 students in each and 10 classes with 10 students in each. The average number of students per class is found by following: (100 + 100 + 100)/12 = 25 students per class, not bad. Or, is the average found this way: (100 + 100 + 10)/3 = 70 per class. I wonder which method Mayor Mike would use. As an educator, I know which method is better. As Mark Twain said, "There are lies, damn lies and then there are statistics."
