EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Suspend your ideas of classroom capacity and everything you've ever considered regarding the look and feel of the traditional classroom.

What is an optimal class size for one teacher? Is there (should there be) such a number? Does it matter the needs, be them academic, intellectual, or emotional needs of the student population? Does it matter if the range of ability levels? Does it matter the individual capacity and ability level of the teacher?

If we're truly going to do something different in education, if we are truly going to look at students as individuals, why can't we look at teachers as individuals?

Should there be a matrix for this situation?

How many children is too much for a family? How many children is too much for a family? Why is a teacher so much more qualified to give quality instruction to as many as 5-10x more children?
