A little diversion from the school reform fare: An Illinois school has 24 sets of twins in a single grade.

This Associated Press story reports that the discovery was made by 11-year-old twins Luke and Ryan Novosel, who attend Highcrest Middle School in Wilmette, a northern suburb of Chicago, when they were looking around for a way to get into the Guinness Book of World Records.

They counted up the twins in their fifth grade and found what the AP says appears to be a world record for a single grade in a school. The current record: 16. The twins plan to ask to enter the Guinness Book with the new record.
