    Re: Class size
    Flacka

    In the vast majority of states kindergarten isn't even
    mandatory which is crazy in and of itself. A friend who
    teaches in a very poor urban school has 30 in her class and
    no aide. We have a grant that limits the class size at our title
    1 school to 22 but schools in the district without the grant
    have much larger classes. As long as the politicians keep
    starving the schools we will continue to have to do more with
    less.
