So the big talk these days is that we need to increase school funding or class sizes will increase. Currently, the average classroom has 23 students in it in the local area schools .
Now I may well be mistaken, but in elementary school, I remember having 35+ students, and I was reasonably well edumacated. (I lernet to reed and rite pretty good!)
I had classes in high school that exceeded 30 several times, and 27 or so wasn't unheard of.
Yet somehow, my teachers were able to impart some knowledge into my meager brain.
So how is it that 25 students average classroom sizes is too much a load for modern teachers? Especially with modern teaching aids?
Or is this a union thing? Or NEA?
'cause if not, then my teachers were terribly overworked....
