Students need more teachers

Have you ever not gotten the attention that you rightfully deserve from your teacher? This is the way that thousands of kids feel at school. There has to be more teachers per student because then teachers can focus more on each student and give them the attention that they need. This will help kids who are struggling without holding back the entire class. Also, it will allow teachers to acknowledge students who excel. With more teachers additional students will be able to move at their own speed.

Having more teachers per student will provide a lot of jobs for teachers because smaller classes mean extra classes and this means more teachers. This will be costly but it will help students get a better education. Today’s kids are tomorrow’s adults. Education is important. It will affect everything that humans do. Therefore the future of our planet depends on it. So we need to have more teachers per student.
