My husband went to a small elementary school in a very small town. Several grades were grouped together in what was basically a one room schoolhouse. He said it was the best thing that could have happened for him because he learned a lot from listening to what the older kids were being taught. So I'm not sure that is a bad thing... sorry I hate to poop on your parade but that's the truth.
Comparing apples to oranges isnt' really effective when trying to get your point of view across.

my son (turns four in September) goes to Montessori school, that is the idea behind Montessori preschool, grouping kids of different ages together to enrich learning, he has kids as old as 6 in his room, they really do the same things but process it on different levels.... it is not a bad thing at all to do, esp for the younger ones of the group. they learn a lot listening to the older kids, what could be more engaging. my son loves it. btw they do have special needs students including one child with down syndrome in the school.
