Give Me A Break

Sounds like a good idea to me. I had one teacher who taught the 1st and 2nd grade class at the same time in the same classroom. I had one teacher who taught the 4th, 5th and 6th grade at the same time in the same classroom. I had one teacher who taught the 7th and 8th grade at the same time in the same classroom. Everything worked just fine. Then I went to college and I had courses in theater-size rooms that held about 250 students and one professor. Everything worked just fine. I even had college classes where there were no professors--just a movie screen with a couple of hundred students listening to professor on a screen giving the lecture. Everything worked just fine. What is this BS about class size? The teacher's Unions want us to believe that unless there is a 1-to-1 ratio of teachers to students that it is impossible to give a kid a good education. That's total BS and only a scam for the Unions to get school systems to hire more teachers that can pay more in Union Dues. Give me a break--by that, I mean a tax break.
