Funding cuts have often resulted in fewer teachers for the state’s students. AP analysis of state statistics shows the number of full-time teachers dropped nearly 6 percent from 2001 to 2011, the last year for which statewide figures are available. And a schools association survey last year and AP sampling this year indicate the trend is continuing, meaning more students per teacher and fewer course offerings. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak, File)
