Class sizes changed little from decades ago

To the Editor,

Re: Class-size report fails to satisfy teachers, Oct. 15.

Our classrooms are appropriate for learning.

I am a parent of four children in School District 68. The only problems with the education system is that there is less and less school days in the year. The days are too short.

How are these children supposed to learn anything when there is always a Pro-D day, early dismissals, movie days,  field trips to the beach, etc.?

My husband and I supplement our kids’ education with extra work at home. We do not want them to fall behind.

The classroom size is no different than when I went to school in the 1980s or when my parents went in the ’60s. My mother went to Brechin school in 1964 and there were 35 students in her Grade 3 class.

It won’t be long before Canada falls behind other countries.
