In this dataset you have a column labeled "Teachers" that contains numbers with decimal points (for example 20.6). It seems unlikely that this is intended to express there are 20.6 teachers working at a given school. could you please provide some insight into the methodology for calculating the values in this column? What is this number intended to represent, average number of students/teacher? I have the same question for columns: "EducationalAssistants" "OtherStaff"
