    • Hi Riley, I think this is a very important issue that seems to be forgotten most of the time. I really enjoyed how you came up with possible solutions to this problem rather than just stating the issue. Great job.

    • Hello Riley,
      This is definitely an interesting take on the class size question, Many colleges are now asking the same questions. I agree a smaller class size is beneficial in an academic regard but I don’t agree with the small social life claim. Here is an article about the class size problem. https://www.wnyc.org/story/teachers-weighing-class-size-say-over-20-usually-too-big/

      Thank you,
      Gracie

    • HI Reliey!
      I am very agree your opion that class size matter. Class size really matter for the education. If the class size is so big, there is certainly not enough time for teacher care every one. Here is a article I read about class size matter.https://www.hmhco.com/blog/class-size-matters
      Kind regards

    • Riley,
      I think you would find this article interesting discussing more about class size. https://www.hmhco.com/blog/class-size-matters
      I agree with you that smaller class sizes are better because the dedication to a student one on one is important. I think you need to focus more on discussing the pros instead of focusing on the cons of public school. I also went to public school and I think that it is important to have more dedication especially if they are struggling. Public school teachers dedicate themselves to their students just as much as private school teachers- their are always good and bad teachers. At public school if the student catches onto things easily, they do not need the one on one education. I think, however, it is sometimes good to be in a big school because it gives you more drive to work harder because there are more students. Overall an interesting topic, but I think you need to add more, maybe some data.
