Re: Legal class size in Texas

I know it is different, if they even have a limit, in each state. Here in
Hawaii we have a limit, but it is calculated by taking all the students and
dividing that number by all the licensed teachers. That includes SpEd
teachers with small classes, the registrar with no classes, even the admin.
So our "limit" can be really big. I think it is 24 or 26 and some of our
teachers have had close to forty kids in a class. I only have 29-30 in my
Art classes. :(
