Does classroom size matter in education quality?
In the present day, many people research about which classroom size is good for students. There are several advantage of small class room size and disadvantage of large class room size such as class room environment, teachers’ attention, and students’ participation problems. Some parents insist that classroom size does not matter to make a good classroom environment and some parents insist that a small class room makes a positive environment for students.

Finally, every student will not participate in the class. If the classroom size is not large, students will think that talk about my opinion is not really serious thing and they will discuss about the topic with their class mate easier than large size classroom. And they will participate in the class
