on Class Size
"The real issue is why we can't find the political will to actually have the kind of schools we know will work. I propose a new discussion topic on what it actually means to educate a person."
I am a recent UO graduate. Many of my classes were over 100 students (my first few college classes were 300-500!). When I was in high school, most of my classes were over 30. The few times I had classes with just 10-20 students, it was AMAZING. I knew the teacher's name and he/she knew mine. I knew the other students around me. We all had chances to engage, discuss, explore our curiosities and discover new ones. I will never forget those classes and the lessons I learned there. I know what I missed and it, for lack of a better word, sucks.
