Report Says Class Size Matters Most K-3


Providing a potential compromise in the class-size debate, a March report by the Southern Region Educational Board (SREB) advises that smaller class sizes have the biggest effect on supporting students in the early grades. Class-size reduction is one of the most expensive education reforms, so the report posits that increasing class sizes in high school would do the least harm to students’ academic performance.

In last week’s most-clicked post, the Huffington Post discusses the SREB report within the context of the presidential election and arguments for and against class-size reduction.
