Will His Classroom Be Too Crowded

Will his classroom become too CROWDED?

What do we know?

  • In December, Texas Comptroller Susan Combs issued the financial allocation for Texas 2010. The Comptroller recommended that legislators “ eliminate the 22 student

limit for each k-4 classroom and require schools to maintain

an Average 22 student class size instead”. Remember when

Texas once had averages?

Typical classes had a lot more than 22 students.

Is this the right thing to do? No!

  • Texas NAACP believes the 22 student limit for k-4 should be kept intact.
  • Texas NAACP believes this is one of the 1984 reforms for HB 72 that has worked.
  • Studies have demonstrated the positive effects of small classes on student achievement (Hodges, & Konstantopoulos, 2000).
  • In 1999, Project STAR researchers reported that students placed in small class sizes in grades k-3 has better high school graduation rates, higher grades point averages, and are more incline to pursue higher Education.
