Reducing class sizes to national average would cost Clark County (Nev.) district $1.2 billion over 4 years

Reducing class sizes in the Clark County (Nev.) School District to the national average would take $1.2 billion over four years, according to figures from the district. The Las Vegas Sun says class sizes in Clark County are among the largest in the nation. In response to the recession, the district raised its student-to-teacher ratios to balance its budget. The district's desire to bring class sizes down will depend on the Nevada Legislature, which would have to find a way to pay for class-size reduction.
