The education news these days is a deafening roar of public school folks wailing and gnashing teeth over budget cuts and “tough times.” But maybe it’s not so bad after all.

From an article on the latest national employment report:

Nearly all of the major sectors of the economy lost jobs. The only industries that saw job gains in October were the education, government and health sectors — which are often considered recession‐​resistant. 

That’s a trifecta of security for public school nurses, but pretty good news for teachers and administrators as well. After all, two out of three ain’t bad!
