andrew i graduated from highschool 3ish years ago, lived in WI my whole life. i dont think i ever, EVER, had a class with less than 20 students. So really, i think your graph is inaccurate, but, only in that the truth is slightly even worse lol.

Andrew, I have taught in several countries, The US has way smaller teacher/pupil ratios than most. I was really surprised. The scariest thing is that some of the countries with very high ratios are the same places we all want to be like educationally, Japan for example. I just don't understand it as I am totally in favor of smaller classes because experience tells me that they produce better results. Statistics, however, seem to contradict it.
