Education changes not all improvement

So some things have changed, not necessarily for the better.

To the Editor,

I can appreciate the questions of class size that teachers or educators are having; however, in looking back at my school year books, I find that many classes were of up to 30 students. Of course there was discipline to keep everything on an even keel.

Some of our teachers were war vets from both sides of the conflict, but there were no cellphones, no texting or other distractions and there was participation by teachers in after school activities.

So some things have changed, not necessarily for the better.
