Effective education with fewer students Nowadays, an educational center has more than 20 students in the classroom. Could the number of students hinder the teaching and learning process in a classroom? According to some studies, the number of students in the classroom influences student learning. On the other hand, the lack of a trained teacher and the classroom infrastructure limits and negatively influences the learning of each student, therefore it is not feasible to double the number of students. On the contrary, the international average indicates and shows Finland who is a country that has ten students per teacher, a strategy that has successfully worked in its educational system, thus, it would be good if the government implemented it. All things considered, the teaching and learning process takes time, which could decrease as the number of students increases. This means that each student must be listened to. Finally, having a large number of students in the classroom slows down the teaching and learning process. To double the number of students, it would be necessary to hire an auxiliary teacher for quality education.
