Texas - The Texas house is tackling an education bill today that would expand the cap on class size.

House Bill 400 calls for districts to average 22 students or less per classroom and would include a hard cap of 25 students in any class.

Current law mandates a 22-to-1 student teacher ratio.

The bill would also allow districts to impose teacher furloughs and pay cuts.
