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. In my opinion, small size of class room is the best way to teach students well.

He illustrates that “Small class sizes lead to more one-on-one attention from the teacher.” (“What Are the Advantages to schools). In my opinion, in the small classroom, students can receive more individualized attention from a teacher.

Consequently, the classroom environment will be so messy. I experienced this situation when I was a middle school student. At that time, I was timid student so I could not tell my opinion well in class because I was worried about other student’s reaction. Because of this reason I am assure that there will be some students who hesitate discuss about the topic in the
