School classes with over 30 students have become more common in the high school, according to the newspaper VG.

The leader of the Student Organisation Sylvia Lind believes classes with 30 pupils and up is a recipe for ignoring individual students who need guidance.

– We want the students to be ensured equal and individualized instruction. With around 30 students in the class, this is an unattainable goal, she says.

VG made a telephone survey among secondary schools in Bergen and Oslo. The common denominator is that schools have a great deal of classes with about 30 students.

At the new Amalie Skram high school in Bergen  steward Heidi Rye admits that students may be overlooked. At school there are several classes with 33 students in each.

– It’s not good with such large classes. I see no educational benefits with this setup, said a teacher.

– I know I’m not supposed to comment in stories so I’ll comment here. it appears obvious that Norway is under investing in the future generation. Here you have taxes 2x higher than Canada average math skills below average science skills and now classes too large for one of the richest countries in the world your doing a terrible job at investing in your future.
