Our district, as I'm sure most of yours have as well, has let go of MANY teachers. They said that their goal was to cause as little change for the students as possible by cutting budgets everywhere they thought would not impact the student... I don't know. Cutting teachers seems like it would greatly impact students. Maybe I'm missing something. Anyway... Since joining this district my average class size in first grade has been 22. I just received my list for next year... It's starting off at 30! I feel that this will have a HUGE impact on the students. I'm curious to see where everyone else stands on class size.
