Zoom classes can have SEVENTY New York Public School students at a time, under new DOE rule, sparking concerns over ‘less manageable’ conditions for learning

Matthew Wright:

New York Public School virtual classrooms could see as many as 68 students signing onto Zoom classes, as per recently negotiated contracts from the city’s Department of Education.

The contracts made with the teachers union allows for remote classes to be twice the 34 student maximum for in-person classes for high school, the Wall Street Journal reports.

‘I can handle a class of 25 kids online, but as it starts pushing to more and more, it becomes less manageable,’ said Kirk Schneider, a teacher at the Urban Assembly Gateway School for Technology in Manhattan.
