Last week, we discussed, "What One Change Would You Make In Today's Schools?
" Here is a summary of the most common responses
- smaller class size
- better administrators
- more caring teachers
- increased parental support
- less emphasis on assessment
- more money for supplies and computers
Was anything major overlooked? Reduced class size seems to be a very hot topic right now
. So it made me wonder... what is the ideal class size? And what could you accomplish if you taught a class of that size?
California limits K-3 classes to no more than twenty students. Would it need to go even smaller in order to make strides in primary education?
