State Senator Tim Knopp of Bend is sponsoring a bill that hopes to better track class size in Oregon. It passed in the senate and earlier in the House- State Representative Jason Conger of Bend is partnering with Knopp on the bill and says the class size data could be very useful.

 

"That's the idea to get a better picture of what's going on - and get a better understanding...impacting children's education..

 

Conger says the current data is more of an average that lumps everything together - so its tough to see what is really going on in specific classes - like math and science. It would also measure sizes in specific grades.
