Jerry Sanders on Education



Implementing national standards in San Diego schools

Education is a top priority in San Diego. As a result of recent legislation, class sizes from kindergarten to third grade have been reduced to less than 20 students per class. Studies show that the K-3 years are the most formative, and that by reducing class size, teachers can give more personalized attention. To achieve the smaller class size, more than 250 new teachers have been hired and new schools are planned and funded for construction.
