THE ISSUE: SCHOOL CROWDING

County Councilman Charles C. Feaga, a west county Republican, contends that Howard could solve its school-crowding problems by increasing class size by two students per classroom. That process collectively would equal two elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school. But school officials contend that studies show smaller class sizes result in a better education and a better chance to close the student-performance gap.

Enlarging classes also would not work evenly, they say, because of geographic population distribution.
