Baton Rouge,La (NBC33) — A bill in the state legislature is proposing a limit on class size in the state's classrooms.
House Bill 211 was authored by Republican Representative Joe Harrison. It would limit the number of students in Kindergarten through fourth grade classes to 15.
It also would require two teachers in each of those classrooms. One would teach math and science, and the other English.
The bill still has to be heard by the education committee.
