Number Of Wyoming Students Per Class May Go Up

A bill has been introduced in the Wyoming House of Representatives that would increase the amount of students allowed in a classroom in the state. If passed the bill would permit up to 24 students per classroom in all state schools grades k through 12. The current law mandates that there must be a 16 to 1 student to teacher ratio in kindergarten through third grade and 21 students per teacher in grades 6th through 12th. Those standards were established several years ago as part of the State’s comprehensive reform effort to help improve student achievement. The bill now must be passed though a vote.
