This campaign ad talks about the differences in education policy between the candidates.  Where do you stand?  Do you think class size matters?  How important is education funding?

 Educational funding is essential. More money means more teachers which means more classrooms with fewer students per class.

I don't agree that more money= more teachers. More money usually equals higher pay for those who are in administration.

I do think education matters and class sizes matter. 

I think doing away with No Child Left Behind would help tremendously too.

Class size absolutely matters. Cutting education funding would be a HUGE mistake. If anything funding should be increased. It's sad that teachers, who don't make a lot themselves, are having to use their own personal money for supplies.

Of course it matters.  We go to a school where the average class is 18 kids/2 teachers.

Yes it matters. Some of the teachers are over whelmed with the number of students in the class. They are unable to help each child individually because they are so outnumbered. My dd's school just hired a new kindergarten teacher because the two that they had, had almost  40 kids per classroom and they only have one teacher's aid that has to help out in both classrooms.
