Reduce class size; improve education

Success - Article sent! close

The overwhelming number of students in high school classrooms needs to be reduced to 20 or fewer to improve public education.

As a student, I think installing more computers or building large classrooms will not help the issue because it is still overcrowding classes.

Eliminating overcrowding would make it easier for the teacher to maintain discipline and to interact with the students. Also, the cost of reducing the number of students in a classroom can be overcome by reallocating resources such as integrating all students into heterogeneous classes, developing a uniform curriculum and reducing specialized programs.
