Smaller class sizes for Georgia students

Two of Governor Perdue’s education plans have cleared the Georgia State House of Representatives.

One would lower class size.

It passed 160 to 4, and now moves to the Senate.

The bill limits class sizes for math, science, social studies and language arts -- from kindergarten through middle school.

Classes from fourth to eighth grade would be restricted to 28 students, and the others to 18 to 21 pupils.
