We all get that small classes are better. The idea is simple:
reduce the number of kids in a class and you greatly improve teaching
and learning. After all, who would argue that a 20-person classroom
isn't better than a tiny-tot sweat shop?
reducing class size isn't cheap, and Broward and Palm Beach counties paid millions in fines
this year for not reducing them enough. So while
Florida continues to struggle with how to reduce classroom sizes, we've come up with a few ideas to solve the problem.
3. Move to Wyoming
we could just convince our county's rednecks to make the move to this
charming, Midwest state, we'd all be a lot better off. As the country's
least populated state, with an estimated total population of 563,626 in
April of 2010, we're pretty sure you'll never have to worry about
2. Head Back Home
are, the education your kids will get wherever you immigrated from is
actually better than the school system here in Florida. Enough said.
1. Home Schooling
so much of our county's jobless population living off unemployment
checks and collecting food stamps, we see the perfect opportunity to
make a positive contribution to society. Rather than spend your days
watching Jerry Springer and guzzling down six-packs, we suggest all
those out-of-work parents do something constructive with their free
time. What better way to spend some quality time with your kids than to
teach them how to read your unpaid utility bills, count your empty beer
bottles, and paint over the foreclosure sign in the front yard.
