Studies show that smaller class sizes lead to an efficient learning environment. Large class sizes often have a higher rate of distractions and disturbances, and the teacher won't be able to focus on every student.
However, if the class size is small, then the teacher will be able to reach every student and will be able to avoid disturbances and interruptions.
This will mean more learning time, and everyone will absorb knowledge at the end of the day.
We have proposed a bill to create a 20 student per teacher/classroom limit for all public schools within the State of Michigan.
This will require the school district/administration to sort the students into classrooms of 20 or less for every teacher.
