All students should have the benefits of smaller class sizes.
Frontline classroom educators identify small classes as the most important factor in their ability to work individually with students and meet their diverse needs. Smaller classes improve student behaviour and peer relationships and increase student engagement and achievement in the early grades.
Cap Kindergarten at 26 students and put a stop to Kindergarten/Grade 1 split grade classes, which aren’t supported by a designated early childhood educator.
Overcrowded and often noisy classrooms or open “pods” limit teachers’ and early childhood educators’ ability to take full advantage of the play-based program and create stressful work and learning environments.
