last year I created a Class Team for the whole grade and created private channels in it. I added each class in a private channel by a mailing group. When I tried to do this now it doesn't work. I can only add each student individually to the private channel not the whole mailing group of the class.

Note:

There were no problem when I used the same mailing groups to add the same students to the Class Team as members.

Hi, can't say how it works for Teams Edu but it's not possible to bulk-add from the GUI. Are you sure those where private channels? Anyway, to solve this you can PowerShell with the Add-TeamChannelUser cmdlet. This article describes how to use it https://joguerre.medium.com/adding-bulk-users-to-teams-private-channels-8c9c8e563900
