School class sizes grow

The Week - Junior - - Home News -

An in­ves­ti­ga­tion has re­vealed that many chil­dren across Eng­land are be­ing taught in classes that con­tain more than 100 pupils. The in­for­ma­tion was col­lected on the same day in Jan­uary across the coun­try. One of the big­gest classes was in a sec­ondary school in south-west Lon­don. It had 181 pupils. It’s thought that Gov­ern­ment fund­ing cuts are to blame. Less money to pay teach­ers could mean there are fewer of them to over­see more, smaller classes.
