Court: Kansas Legislature's level of funding for schools unconstitutional

I am not sure if this analogy will work or not.

Imagine yourself waiting inline behind 28 people at a grocery store checkout. Would that be frustrating? Would you demand more immediate service, asking the store to think about hiring another checker? Would you leave and go to another store?

Now, imagine 28 students waiting with hands up for individual attention from a single teacher. Would this be frustrating for a student? Would it decrease the learning potential of those students within that classroom? Presentation is only half the battle when working with such a dynamic goup of customers.

I would argue that decreasing class sizes by adding more teachers would be a good thing.
