As a high school teacher and a parent of three elementary children, I can tell you that increasing class size would be devastating for students. Elementary teachers are already pressed to train students to outperform last year's class on multiple standardized tests, while creativity and life skills fall by the wayside. How about this? Why don't we suspend testing for a couple of years and use that money to pay the teacher's salaries?

That's why so many new teachers are leaving the state to many kids and not enough "PAY". And then half of the students are learning much of nothing anyways. Parents you try sitting in a class with that many and "C" what you have learned.It's not like they are in college I understand class with 27 students but not "R' little people come on now.Edu cation dept do better with our FUTURE
