Recently returned from an educational trip to China, Fairfield-Suisun Unified Superintendent Kris Corey said one of the most surprising aspects of Chinese schools are class sizes of 55 or more and high schools of 10,000.
In a wide-ranging interview with The Reporter, Corey, a Vacaville resident, compared the U.S. education system with the Chinese, but her observations and impressions largely touched on stark differences between the two.
