ATLANTA The Georgia Senate gave final approval Friday to lower class sizes in K-8 classrooms, sending Gov. Sonny Perdues election-year proposal to his desk.
The reductions, approved 50-0, cut each allowable public classroom size for most programs.
The law will reduce class sizes by four students in fourth through eighth grades, and it will mean two fewer pupils in kindergarten through third-grade classrooms. If a kindergarten teacher has a full-time assistant, the cap will be set at 20 students.
