Hi Mack,

You might want to check with your local fire department.  They might have concerns about how many students are in each lab section.

The same may be true of your insurance company.

Have a good day,

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Class sizes

Last year or so there was discussion about class sizes for chemistry lab classes. Are those sizes mandated by a regulatory agency or suggested by a non regulating organization. The specific problem I need to address is potential overcrowding in high school labs designed for 24 students. Current attitudes in education are financily driven not safety driven.
