on Class Size
Due to my husband's job (he's military), we have moved frequently. My children have experienced school's in 5 different states. I have worried about thier education with every move, but I never thought that Oregon would cause me the greatest amount of worry. We were all set for dissapointment when we moved to Hawaii, but my children had a far better education there then they are getting here. My son is one of 42 in his 8th grade humanities class and my kindergartener is one of 26 in his (dual immersion) class. In comparison to Madison, Wisconsin where kindergarten classes did not exceed 16. I don't think that anywhere we have lived have classes exceeded 24. I can tell that the connection between my children and their teachers is just not as strong.
