RE: Schedule/ class loads

ARGH, Ken.

When will the schools get the picture? How can learning take place with
36 students in any class, elementary or High School? That is just,
well, no thinking at all on the adminstration's part. Perhaps they are
overcrowded, but wouldn't double sessions beat 36 kids in a class? At
least then, you are not just dealing with discipline.

You as well as your district are in my prayers.

I just found out that my classes are going to have 38 students in a
combined class of Art 2,4 as well as 36 in Art 1, 34 in Art 3, and
combinations of a.p. in with Art 3. I only have 30 desks and very
little room. I have more discipline problems with kids that do not have
a desk, storage, drawing board and feel like they are just visiting,
because they are not given a space. I will manage, but it is getting
out of hand, our district has made the cap for students at 36 to 1.
