Download: Controlling Class Sizes
Some lawmakers in the state of Washington want to make sure class sizes don’t get out of hand.
According to Columbian.com, a bill would increase school staffing levels each year. Adding teachers to high-poverty schools would be a priority.
The goal would be to have 17 students in early grades and 25 students in grades 4 through 12.
Schools there now average about 23 students per class.
