<< I found out that I will have 34 in each class with 4 out of five classes
mixed classes of Art 3/4, A.p./art 4, Art 2/3. I have only 30 desks and a
very small room. I will have to sit kids at the end of tables and they won't
have drawing boards or tote trays. This makes discipline and room noise a big
problem. >>

School populations are booming. There's no shortage of kids in our programs.
I have 36 teenagers in a small portable with one sink and faulty A/C which
either makes the room freezing cold in one spot and sticky warm in another.
I'm kvetching, but one really gets tired of the lack of support in our
schools for anything other than the "honors" classes.
