Schools can pack as many students as they want into classes like Calculus, Writing, Spanish and Physical Education. There are no class size limits. But there is the issue of space.
In order to accommodate 66 students at once, the girls locker room at Hialeah High is being used as a classroom.
There aren’t enough desks or chairs for the students, so they stack up blue and green exercise steps to use as chairs. Other students either stand or sit on the ground. Listen to the story to hear from a principal who says schools don’t always have the resources to follow the law.
