GA governor signs bill reducing class sizes

In Georgia, students may soon not have as many neighbors in class.

Governor Sonny Perdue signed the Truth in Class Size bill Wednesday.

Beginning in the fall of 2006, parents and teachers will see no more than 18 students in a kindergarten class. That's down from a maximum of 20 in the past.

For grades 1-3, classes will be reduced to 21 students per class. That's down from 23.

In grades 4-8, class sizes will be reduced from 32 students to a maximum class size of 28 students.
