Re: Legal class size in Texas

Thanks for the information. It is amazing to me. I still think it probably breaks some fire law or something, but I am not able to find the information. At one time, I read that there had to be so many square feet per student in a studio type class. Hmmmm....I'll keep looking.
I feel for you trying to teach that many students. How long is your class period? You would be lucky to have a minute for each student.
Good luck and hang in there.

PS. Woody, I'm not to far from Albuequerque. If you visit el paso, let me know.

My art supervisor just told me that there is no limit
to class size. I just got moved to to a high school
because of 45-50 students enrolled in ArtI classes,
but then the girl I left behind at intermediate school
had all of my classes combined with hers and now she
has the 45- 50 students.

I guess administrators will continue to do this until
there is a law written instead of, I dunno, using
common sense...Crazy stuff.

Worked out well for me though. Dawn
