How many virtual classes have over 30 students on a roster, @MarkTreyger718 asks.— Alex Zimmerman (@AGZimmerman) January 20, 2021
Conyers: "it’s impossible for me to sit here and tell you"
Chen: It's possible some classes have over 50 students (for blended students on remote days).
Of course, they know very well how many students are in classes over 30, but prefer not to answer and have repeatedly delayed releasing any class size data as legally required by Nov. 15.
On Oct. 26, at the Mayor's press conference, Chancellor Carranza reported that the DOE has been collecting attendance data and thus class size in "literally three buckets of attendance every single day": in-person classes, remote blended learning classes and full-time remote.
See my testimony below, which includes class size data from a parent survey undertaken by survey undertaken by Special Support Services LLC. My testimony also critiques the administration's plans to double down on online learning next year.
