Children being taught in 70+ classes

By NewsNo Comments

Newspapers1

According to recent surveys hundreds of children are now being taught in classes with more than 70 pupils in them.

This has been put down to the sudden rise in a baby boom around the Uk, as well as rising immigration figures.

There are now over 90,000 classes with more than 30 pupils in them. This figure has trebled over the past four years.

However the Department for Education found some disturbing figures that revealed 6 primary schools had 1 teacher to 70 students, while 100 schools had 1 teacher to 50 students.

It is feared by 2020 the number of pupils in large classes will reach almost half a million,

So is this a major problem that needs to be fixed? Don’t we need more one-to-one teaching?

And how can we fix this problem? Maybe more teachers are needed or bigger schools built? Whatever the issue something needs to be done soon or the student to teacher ratio could get out of control.

Evening everyone,

It’s been a while since I last blogged on our website – Sorry for this, I have been very busy as I’m sure you guys have as well.

As Chris mentioned in his blog earlier this month, at Kids’ Corner Education we have been very busy to get our website ready for the new school year.

On this note, this brings me on to my next update! Over the September period we will be working with a number of Voice Over actors to finish recording our History podcasts. This will cover a number of topics, such as World War I, World War II, Victorian Britain, Roman’s, The Vikings and The Tudors.

By September the amount of podcasts for kids available will be phenomenal. If everything goes according to plan we will have over 250 podcasts, with 420+ minutes of audio covering 130+ subject topics.

Chris has also finished editing our French Podcasts, which means we now have 2 languages available to our listeners, so please feel free to sign up and listen to these as much as you want, at http://members.kidscornereducation.com/.

 

We will speak with you guys soon!
