Last week we had an education themed section of Agree or Disagree. Today, I wanted to add one more. And it is one that does impact in many different areas.
Yesterday, the enrolment numbers came out in the Public and the Catholic School Districts here in Calgary. The numbers are interesting particularly in the area of class size.
In the Public School System the CBE is predicting one teacher for every 18. 5 students.
In the Catholic School System, the prediction is one teacher for every 17 students.
It doesn’t seem to matter what area of schooling we are looking at, Kindergarten, Elementary, Junior High, Senior High and even Post-Secondary the issues of class size has come up.
What do you think? Are class sizes to big?
