State-mandated New Class Sizes

State-mandated new class sizes caused a lot of change for Wake County schools this year, and there is more to come next year. The NC General Assembly inserted these changes into the budget last year. They dropped average K-3 class sizes for school districts from 21 students to between 16 and 18 children, depending on grade level. Legislators also dropped maximum individual K-3 classroom sizes from 24 students to between 19 and 21 students. After some push back, lawmakers agreed to delay most of these changes until the 2018-2019 school year. Read more here from the News & Observer.
