    I guess I am just lucky *sarcastically*--I have 34 kids in my room at 4th grade. In my district we still have 20 to 1 in k-3 but that is on the bargaining table this year because of severe budget cuts in california....the state is no longer funding smaller class size. The area I live in has done away with class size reduction in 3rd and the trend is going to continue in many districts unless the budget situation gets better.

    I am in a brand new school that is growing REALLY fast. I am at capacity and my partner teacher is getting there so we will hopefully at a new class soon--and maybe we can get down to 24 or 28 kids....

    I am going crazy with this many after having 20 2nd graders--and I have a LOAD of high needs kids (3 in special ed, 3 gifted, and another few with behavioral problems).....it is tough!
