Leaving children behind?

Writing about web page http://allafrica.com/stories/200411050677.html

At this primary school, there is talk of adding more students. They want to allow students who are at a lower english speaking level in. Parents of children already in the school do not want this because the pupil to teacher ratio will rise from 33:1 to 45:1. This is difficult for teachers to handle as it makes it difficult for one on one interaction with students. So what should they do? How do you accomodate for a growth in students? Will they be able to get more teachers? These are questions that are being addressed in this situation.

  1. FORTY-FIVE FLIPPING KIDS?

    They must be mental. They must. There's just no way. NO way on this earth that you can get any qualtity of teaching or work done with orty-five kids. It would just be riot control. In our class in primary school we ended up with thirty-three and that was quite a handful.

    They're mental. Absolutely crackers. They need more teachers, more staff full stop actually. More classroom assistants even. Good grief, but that'll be awful! They'll end up with less teachers because the sheer stress will mean they'll take early retirement.

    Oh dear…

  2. Hey Tyler – just found your blog. Hmmm – you might actually be surprised – a class of 45 kids could work. Where is the school (sorry, couldn't follow the link)? I have a vague idea you could get classes full of children who wanted to learn – and would thus be able to work with 45 of em. Can anyone with better experience of african classrooms help me out?
