conclusion, classrooms should be smaller because in each grade level has many
different students, in elementary schools, there can be up to 25-30 students,
in middle school there is up to 30-35 students and in high school there is 50
students or more in a classroom and that’s my estimation, but I have seen this
myself. For many schools took a survey to see if the class sizes should be
smaller and the there was a 50-50 chance that class sizes should be smaller.
Within this survey teachers think this a great idea because teachers can be
one-on-one with each student and each student can have a better education.
On the other hand, smaller class sizes are
expensive because they need more classroom space and more teachers are needed.
Smaller class sizes seem further out of reach than ever because of today’s
economic climate. The expensive school is private schools which tend to have
smaller class sizes. But with public schools-charter schools tend to have
smaller class sizes but also space is very limited. The trickiest thing is for
states and school districts because they must hire more and more teachers. But
also, the teacher’s salary is low with smaller class sizes. The truth about
class sizes are not always better when it comes to students. With many larger
class sizes students have bad anxiety when it comes to bigger class sizes.
Furthermore. leading within many details about
class sizes should be smaller. Many teachers enjoy having smaller class sizes
because teachers will have less stress, manage each student performance in the
classroom, and keep track of what she is teaching. With many researches I have
done many people say that the smaller the better because you can meet the needs
of kids much more effectively with less students. Each class size provides the
greatest opportunity when necessary, it has the biggest boost in academic
achievement with a numerous number of studies in students. Each student will be
more active in class participation, they receive attention and interact with
the teacher. But with the reducing class sizes many schools district will have
to hire more teachers and add on to the school for more classrooms. The cost of
hiring more teachers and add more classrooms it would take to long for school
districts to plan this out.
students are always looking for a better way to get better grades in school,
but class sizes can be a little haunted because the
teachers are overwhelming sometimes, but is also good to have down time for the
teachers so they can really relax before they move into the next class. But
every teacher must deal with hundreds of children each day which be good or bad
mostly good because the teachers love being there for the students and educate
them. With many student’s teacher go through so much to be a great teacher,
they have many different degrees they must go through and they love to work
with children. Many schools do not have funding to hire more teachers or even
make more classroom. Many students and teacher cannot handle 50 students in one
class but with reducing the class sizes to about 20 students will help teachers
become less stressed and for the students will have a better chance at becoming
a better student. Parents are always asking their child how they are liking
have a bigger class size and many students say they rather have a smaller class
size because they can focus more on their education and get better grades. The
smaller the class the better student outcomes. For the early grade like
elementary and middle schools class sizes are the most that should be reduced a
little bit because the class size is about 30 students so reduce them down by
10 students. While high schools are very overwhelmed with over 50 students and
I know this by my own experience in high school. There are many students who
cannot handle that many students in one class because they get distracted by
other students, cannot focus on any class stuff and gain better skills in each
subject. The student achievement is more strongly in a smaller class size. The
teachers are overwhelming sometimes, but is also good to have down time for the
teachers so they can really relax before they move into the next class.
a classroom can be hard because teachers have many different students at many
various levels and with many disabilities, but there are many teachers who can
stand there and teach students. “The management of resources and
decision-making at school level, and its impact on class size” (Bennett 23).
With classroom management style the age/intake characteristics of the children
they teach the students attitudes can be ever hard for teachers because
teaching and learning, preferred teaching approaches experience and training.
Parents like the idea of having small class because it gives the teacher the
opportunity to sit down with each student and each of the parents to give
feedback on their child. But also, it helps with less distractions for students
who need to focus more in class. Within relation to both children and classroom
teaching, class size, influences teaching and learning for students. “The
effects on many student’s behavior, safety, relationships with teachers, and
emotional well-being, standards of work, as well as the quality and quantity of
curriculum resources.” (Bennett page 26). Motivation can help students become
more successful in school if they keep on going further with education. The National Curriculum, says many options
do not affect class sizes but, help schools meet better education requirements.
With these requirements students will receive educational needs. But to improve
the level teaching, schools need a lot more facilities and learning environment
which allows teachers to have more time with each student. “For school’s
teachers who have taught with 50 students in a classroom have only recently become a cause for concern.” (Bennett page 31).
Students behavior and students work are mostly like comes from assessments.
“The assessment for children’s work, standards of work and pupil’s behavior,
the most important adverse effects are clearly seen to be in individual teacher
attention. With smaller class sizes many students like to have more to work on
school work to get better grades.
like many articles, “Class Size in Primary Schools”
by Neville Bennett it starts by stating the background of classroom
sizes should be smaller, furthermore leading into where class sizes are today.
The author Neville Bennett presents the reader with children
experience improvements in the quality of education. Student-teacher interaction increases in smaller class
sizes. Smaller class size such as students 20-25 have impacted teacher-
learning interaction which may help reduce teacher workload and stress.
Teachers will have more time and opportunity to give individual student the
attention they need. With the smaller classroom size, many, students are mostly
on some lower levels of ability and need more attention from the teacher. As
the author Bennett says, “some studies ignored the tendency to teach children
with learning difficulties in small groups or classes, and these were thus
often included in the sample of small classes” (Bennett 14). Studies have shown that children with regular sized
grade 4 and 5 classes, and designed to ascertain whether, and to what extent,
these benefits lasted when they were transferred into. In addition, student’s behavior, adverse effects standards of
work, as well as the quality and quantity of curriculum resources, safety,
relationships with teachers, and emotional well-being. Smaller class size is a
good selling point but are not prepared to believe smaller classes did not
improve learning. With extremely reducing class sizes may intake since all this
would be a loss for teachers. With less pressure on the teacher, the small
classes add more attention for each individual student. For teachers it is hard
to manage a class size so big because it put a lot pressure on them do many
things for that class and must do it again and again.
With class sizes getting bigger every year
within many different school’s classes ranging in size from 30-50 students
depending on which grade level you are in. Class sizes should be smaller
because students will benefit from more individual time with the teachers
because students will get better grades, teachers will have less stress
teaching a smaller class size and districts will have to hire more teachers and
add more classrooms.
