Letter to the Editor
Big classes way back when

March 16, 2011

Dear Editor,

In response to the complaint about cutting teachers and having 34 students in a fourth grade class, I have attached a picture of my 1951 fourth grade class at St. David School in Detroit.

There are 51 students count them. Mrs. Jacques didn't have any trouble dealing with that many students. We all learned the material and most of us were in the 1960 graduating class.
