>The two columns of teacher's names used to be balanced:

[example omitted]

Your example is incomplete. There should be a \begin{minipage} to
balance the \end{minipage}. The preamble is also missing, so we
have no way of telling if you have changed some important parameters.

I get nicely balanced columns with the following minimal file.
Only this was added to the code:
        ... \\
plus a preamble just sufficient to guarantee that it compiles.
My version of multicol is 1.8e.


\paragraph{Class}  (please \ding{52})\\
