If I understand correctly you would prefer the alternative that removes the 10 unruly kids from class ("finding alternatives"). Where would you have them go? To another overcrowded classroom? How does that help the kids already in that class? Or do you hire another teacher just for those kids? If schools weren't constrained by their current budget crisis then that might work fine. If your scenario were a reality then there wouldn't be nearly as many families looking for non-traditional options.
So do we increase funding to traditional schools and attempt to hire more teachers? Maybe. Another option exists to spend no additional funds yet provide a better environment option for some students.
