So, we are providing the "bare minimum?" Really? When has education funding ever been higher?

Why do Catholic schools and charter schools get better results with less?

Yes, the class may have had 40 kids in it, but it also had two teachers, for a 20:1 ratio.

In Singapore, they routinely have 40:1 ratios, yet they somehow do OK.

Finally, I thank you for your honesty in admitting that class size has little to do with test results. I think you and I agree that success in the classroom has more to do with the culture in the schools and homes than with money.
