Agreed. Now a days children are not getting as much one on one time with their teachers because of the shortage of teachers causing some to struggle in the classroom.
I didn't think about the teacher in a students life influencing how well they learn but I agree. Having a lot of students per teacher isn't good. Some students may be slower or just not understand a lesson. A good school should have enough teachers to be able to help a student if he/she needs it. My two big problems for elementary school students was attention spans and home life but I can see that your idea is a big problem for young students too.
I remember when i went to silver street elementary we had two teacher for a class of 10 kindergarten students.
Totally agree. Also, teachers have to be one of the most under-paid and under-appreciated occupations today. Most teachers have to work a side job to be able to pay bills, and the high-turnover rate from teachers quitting because they can make more money in another profession has to be contributing to decreased educational standards in the classrooms.
I agree. Also I think that we should be more focused on schools and how they are funded in a bad economy. These kids are going to be our future and need them to be educated.
