While the total enrollment of public elementary and secondary schools in Sondland is one percent higher this academic year than last academic year, the number of teachers there increased by three percent. Thus, the Sondland Education Commission's prediction of a teacher shortage as early as next academic year is unfounded.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the claim that the prediction of a teacher shortage as early as next academic year is unfounded?

(A) Funding for public elementary schools in Sondland is expected to increase over the next ten years.

(B) Average salaries for Sondland's teachers increased at the rate of inflation from last academic year to this academic year.

(C) A new law has mandated that there be ten percent more teachers per pupil in Sondland's public schools next academic year than there were this academic year.

(D) In the past, increases in enrollments in public elementary and secondary schools in Sondland have generally been smaller than increases in the number of teachers.

(E) Because of reductions in funding, the number of students enrolling in teacher-training programs in Sondland is expected to decline beginning in the next academic year.

Option A - INCORRECT.
Due to the yearly increase in number of students enrolling in Sondland school, it is predictable that funding for public elementary schools in Sondland is expected to increase over the next ten years accordingly.

Option B - INCORRECT.
Average salaries for Sondland's teachers may not have increased at the rate of inflation from last academic year to this academic year due to the increase in number of teachers employed.

Option C - CORRECT.
This option contains statement which most seriously weakens the claim that the prediction of a teacher shortage as early as next academic year is unfounded. If there should be a new mandated law for an increase in numbers of teachers at ten percent more per pupil in Sondland's public schools next academic year than there were this academic year, then there is every possibility that there won't be a shortage as claimed.

Option D - INCORRECT.
In the past, increases in enrollments in public elementary and secondary schools in Sondland have generally been smaller than increases in the number of teachers. Meanwhile the statement in this option is the practical example of a change in the sondland academy.

Option E - INCORRECT.
If there is a reduction in the academics definitely it is going to affect all ramification concerning education. More reason why a reductions in the number of students enrolling in teacher-training programs in Sondland is expected to declined. But is it obvious there is an increase this year meaning if there is a possibility of an increment in next year teachers-training programs in sondland academy.
