Speak up to retain class size limits

  • Article
text size: AAA

The Illinois State Board of Education has recently proposed to eliminate part of Rule 226.730, which limits the class size for students with disabilities. Under this new rule there would be no limit for how many students with disabilities can be placed into a general education classroom. This would negatively affect the learning growth of children who learn at a different pace and style than others. By retaining class size limits, students will be afforded the time and differentiated instruction that can help them be successful in their academic careers.

Please speak up and voice your opinion to the ISBE and our legislators to retain class size limits and to not eliminate Rule 226.730.
