Well, if you are a teacher and was assigned to teach a class of 55 students with no teacher aid, what will you do? will yu accept the challenge? I know if a teacher who is handling a class of more than 50 every year. I wonder how she manage her class that she even come out as top during achievement test. What a terrible job she is doing. If you are a teacher and was offered to teach but 50 in a class, would you accept the challenge? Well, I might try it.

hmm In my university class, we are a maximum of 90 students but like the other person said above, we are adults and mature compared to children. Children are energetic so they talk, or do things that will disturb the class everytime so it will be hard to take control of it. I think it requires alot of energy for a teacher to teach 30 students but if you increase the amount, the teacher would need alot of water and guts. Maybe that school has a low budget and can't afford many teachers like my university...that's why my classrooms are always big.

Well, if I am a teacher and assigned to teach a class of 55 students with no teacher aids, I will draw the figures on the black board, which are useful and related to the topic . Yes , I will accept the challenge. In olden days there is no teaching aids. How the education spread through out the world , this was done by the teachers only. A good and talented should accept the challenge of 50 students in a class.

Right!!! in Asian countries, having 50 students in a class is allowed but in the U.S? the maximum is 24-25 only in a class. Yeah, it is a challenge but good for talented and efficient teachers who can be effective with that 55 in class. Good classroom management is very important on this.

If you're talking about in highschool, or elementary, I think we need more teachers. 55 students for one teacher, does not offer the students the individual time they may need with their teacher. This isn't a challenge that teachers should feel they are taking on, this is an issue that needs to be corrected for the future of the students.

you are exactly right!! this happened in an elementary classroom. yeah, this thing needs to be corrected. I just appreciate the teacher's talent because she was able to manage her student to get a high rank on the achievement test? Great!!
