I find this slightly amusing. I went to school in India and my yr 1 class had 60 kids to one teacher. And my yr3 class had 73. We had 7-8 classes per grade.
The local private boys school had 100kids to every class.
So I assume that kids in the private system have different needs to those in the public system?
And seems that they can learn with a much higher student-teacher ratio.
Why the double standards?
Our public school has teacher aids in all kinder classrooms alongside the teachers in 20 child classes.
I've noticed the non private catholic schools do seem to have bigger classes but they are definitely the preferred schools around this area , the local one apparently had double the applications to the amount of kids it could take , class sizes definitely were a factor in choosing a school for us
