With increasing population, the number of school going children is increasing much faster than the number of schools is increasing. The death of good schools and the greed of school authorities is filling up class rooms to the brim. This is a situation in almost all the big states of America. The number of people with complains about their children going to schools where children’s sit in classes where there is no place to keep chairs and tables. A few statistics by the American education board reports that one out of every 3 children in urban cities studies in a overcrowded school. This is not just a problem in America but also other countries where the condition is even worse. Parents are left with no option other than to stop education completely or to begin home schooling.
Overcrowded classrooms present a problem not just to teachers, but also to students. Teachers face problems controlling a dozen students at times because of unruly behavior and lots of talking. These same teachers when presented with the humongous task of controlling in excess of 30 students at once will get into a compelte mess. It makes a simple task of taking attendance impossible. Especially teenagers who do not respond well to directions and rules. Teachers in these sort of classes are more likely to get nervous break down.
Other problem comes from the side of the student who can not concentrate in the class because of all the other students. The number of failures increases in an overcrowded class because no student can concentrate on the subject at hand. This is leading to numerous problems in classrooms which are producing students with no interest in studies. Action by the government is necessary to reduce this problems and create an environment of education that pushes students to perform better.
