Jamie Dukes said he was sad to hear Monday that Georgia’s State Board of Education had agreed to waive its maximum classroom sizes for next school year.
“As always, it’s going to hurt the students,” said Dukes, a parent of two Glenn Hills Elementary School pupils and the school’s PTO president.
Where exactly is the evidence that dropping class size helps students? Yeah, it makes common sense and yes I know there are some studies that show it does, but not every study shows it. I suspect there is a lot more to it.
But why aren’t these school systems cutting sports first? Probably because that’s the one area of the public school system where kids actually are getting something out of the school day.
