I do not believe the avg class size for 13 year olds in the US is actually 18.3. In my experience it ranged from 30 to 46, and that at an LAUSD HS. Now, mind you, after "norming" and the staff is assured of teaching positions, a number of kids always disappear, at least as far as classroom attendance is concerned. Some are offically delted from the rolls, others remain on their for an entire year.

Hi Liz, the data here is only for class size by 13-year-olds, a parameter for data that few countries maintain. If you see the data for government spending on education and the pupil-teacher ratios at the primary and secondary levels, you'll find Cuba performs extremely well.
