And it gets worse---in order to have "larger classes" you need more space--which translates to more overhead--which means you need need more customers--which means you need more space........
Its can be a self defeating cycle.
The market places the value of MA instruction pretty low all things considered....its a shame...but its generally true.

That is another problem with the business model.
