Record U.S. school enrollment brings new challenges

The New York Times reports that U.S. K-12 enrollment reached a record 49.6 million students in 2003, breaking the previous record of 48.7 million in 1970. The massive number of students has led to new challenges for educators, including the recruitment of teachers, an influx of students who do not speak English, and keeping class sizes manageable.
