    If someone says there's a low teacher-student ratio, does that mean for each teacher there are only a few students (e.g. 1:5), whereas a high teacher-student ratio is the opposite (e.g. 1:30), or have I mixed them up?

    Also... a low student-teacher ratio is the same as a high teacher-student ratio, right?

    No, other way round.

    Ah, cheers.

    Sounds weird to me though.

    1:5 would be a high ratio
    1:60 would be a low ratio

    Well, 1:5 teachers:students is quite a high number of teachers compared to students...
