I just had a couple of 13 yr old American boys staying with us for a couple of days. They are from California. I was shocked when they said that they are in classes of up to 40 kids in school and thought that classes could get up to 50 kids! In the public sector in Australia classes are kept to around 26 kids and parents are up in arms (rightly I think) when they get to 30. What size classes are normal for schools in your area and what would you like them to be? I think 26 can be too many at times and would love class sizes of 15 to 20.
