The benefits of class-size reduction in California public schools are manifold, and one of them is the teacher business.
Under Gov. Jerry Brown’s Local Control Funding Formula, K-3 classes must reach a student-teacher ratio of 24 to 1 by 2021, prompting the state’s school districts to hire more instructors.
As many Solano districts have done in recent months, Fairfield-Suisun Unified leaders, when they meet tonight, likely will approve a class-size reduction program for TK-3 classes across 16 elementary campuses in the county’s largest school district.
