The student to teacher ratio is vital for success of the students in school. When there are a large excess of students, you will lose the opportunity to be able to discuss any problems with staff. Also, a productive student teacher relationship will not be formed. Adding an appropriate amount of staff will help students exceed in school.

 

To expand upon this, students mental health should be appropriately addressed by having a mandatory minimum student to counselor ratio.

Issues: as it is we already have a shortage of teaches because the state doesnt pay them enough compared to other states. Are we going to increase the pay wage for teaches?

As a punishment of cutting down on state funding teachers will get paided less than they already are and will end up quitting causing the school to shut down.
