    Romney needs to get a life and think about what really matters. When you decide. You want to be president you should be prepared.

    Romneys and Ryans comments regarding class size are spoken by individuals who have never been a part of the public school system. What is completely forgotten is that a public school 'must' take all students regardless of their abilities, whereas a private school and a charter school does not. Therefore, the larger class sizes seen often in private schools contain students with similar abilities, whereas the smaller class sizes in a public school contain a very diverse grouping, with often the smallest aimed at teaching those who have the most difficult time. Further, since the mid '60s the public school have been required to take and mainstream the handicapped students – which again the private/charter schools may pick and choose based on ability.
