NC House Passes Class Size Fix

The North Carolina state House votes unanimously to reverse of unintended consequences from legislation passed last year that requires schools to decrease class sizes in grades K-3. The fix, proposed by Henderson County Republican Representative Chuck McGrady, would raise the cap on class sizes, but ensure the average size of classes remain at 19 to 21 students. School officials said if the current caps remain in place, schools would have to cut P.E. and arts classes to pay for the extra staff and classrooms in K-3. The bill now heads to the state Senate.
