Per square foot of room size, the average grade school student spends 5-6 hours a day in a space much smaller than the average JAIL cell!
Take your agerage classroom size of 25x30 for example. Thats 750 square foot of surface. Not even including desks, book cases etc. that works out to less than THIRTY SQUARE FOOT of space per child for 5-6 hours a day! Thats an area of FIVE feet by SIX feet!
How many parents would keep their kids confined to a room that is FIVE feet by SIX feet for 5-6 hours a day?
Thats what we get for our 28% income as well as state taxes!
Obsurd! So, the theory that an extra FIVE students per class room for kids in 1st through 3rd grade will make no differance is off base.
