Two new research summaries on the multiple benefits of class size reduction

Here are two research summaries on the evidence for the wide-ranging benefits of class size reduction; the first is for use by any teacher, parent or advocate nationally; the second is meant primarily for residents of New York state.

These research briefs are especially useful in advocating for your state or district to use its Title IIA funds for class size reduction, as the new federal law known as ESSA, or Every Student Succeeds Act, requires evidence if these funds will be used to hire teachers to lower class size.

Thanks for sharing this helpful report. I am sure it will be a useful argument and evidence for many parents. Needless to say that big classes are no good. Yes, kids learn in a group but still there should be a place for an individual approach. When there are too many kids in the classroom, it’s hard for a teacher to watch all of them and to provide them with the quality knowledge as every student needs an individual approach. Needless to say that kids need a quality education as in the future they may need to look at NYC resume writing service review to build a successful career.
