Overcrowded Classrooms

Classrooms that are overcrowded and the lack of attention from teachers instigate class disruption among students.

The best way to get children's attention is a problem for new and inexperienced teachers. However, teachers often have trouble getting students to pay attention to them because the teachers do not pay attention to the students. Overcrowded classrooms are often the main cause of the lack of teachers paying attention to their students. A problem among schools is the lack of funding. When a school has a small amount of funding and a large amount of attendance, administration is forced into putting too many students into classrooms that are too small. For example, if you have 40 students in a class and the class is 90 minutes long it is impossible for a teacher to answer one question from each student and teach a lesson. With this in mind, how do people expect adequate education out of these inadequate schools?

If schools have more funding this can provide larger classrooms and more teachers. Reducing class size makes a much bigger difference for students that need extra attention. Hiring more teachers can insight more classrooms. The problem is that if there isn't enough funding to hire the extra teachers then how can there be more classrooms. Proposition 47 is a solution that California is trying to enact that other states can learn from and possibly consider passing.

Proposition 47 is a reasonable solution to an on going problem. Proposition 47, the Kindergarten-University Public Education Facilities Bond Act of 2002, authorizes a $13 billion bond to benefit classrooms. This bond involves help from businesses and education forces banding together and it doesn't require new taxes. Proposition 47 allows schools to have funding for repairs, more classrooms, and technology.
