Republican Rep. John Kline is warning of hardship on the nation's classrooms as they adjust to the new health care law.
    
The Minnesota congressman and chairman of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce voiced the concern as his panel heard about school staffing issues Thursday. Some public school and college officials testified that they may resort to more part-time staff to avoid requirements or sanctions under the health care act.
    
The view that the health law is forcing such cutbacks isn't universal. California Democratic Rep.  George Miller says labor statistics don't support the assertion that employers are scaling back on a widespread basis.
    
The IRS hasn't settled on how to account for college adjunct professor hours, which will determine whether health care is extended to them.
