Kindergarten Hub?

I am pretty fascinated by this idea that is being implemented in Detroit elementary school. Instead of having separate classrooms, all kindy kids are combined into a large classroom and the three teachers rotate students based on subject and comprehension level.

The first thing that jumps out at me though is the number of teachers. When I worked in a private daycare we had to keep a 20 to 1 ratio with the kids by law. I'm not sure why daycares and schools have different laws, but I digress. With five teachers and 100 kids in the school age daycare room it could be chaotic. With three teachers, such as in this Kindergarten Hub? I can only imagine.

Here's the article, I would love to hear your thoughts!

    I thought No Child Left Behind made it so they couldn't have that big of a teacher to student ratio?
    I don't like it. I would never send my kid to a kindergarten like that.

    WOW. In Nebraska they can't have more than 15 kids to a teacher, 20 with a teacher's aide.

      I don't think so. It is proven that the smaller classes yield better results (don't ask for a quote but I know I have read it somewhere). Now if it was small like the one school room classrooms of years gone by, then perhaps.
