I worry that as class sizes increase test scores will go down. Last year I had 27 second grade students without any help. I taught the curriculum and kept the children under control, but was not able to give much individual attention. I worry that test scores will go down and teachers will be blamed for not doing their job. The first grade had 32 students. There was little room to even put the desks:/
judy5ca But the increase is gradual, so it will be hard to prove that bigger class size negatively affects test scores--at least where I teach. We inch up. Honestly, I try to remain positive, but I think test scores will be just one more thing we're expected to "maintain" in the face of adversity. Judy
