Class Size Matters

The Daily News thinks class size is going to grow in the economic downturn. They blame it on budget cuts, but I think it'll be even worse than they predict, as families pull kids out of private schools.

Quote: The goal this year for kindergarten through third grade was an average of 20.5 students per class, and the current average is 21.4.

21.4? Where was PS 101 at last check, 32? 33?
