Class Size Matters

Read new report

The critics are mistaken. Class size matters. A new policy brief released last month demonstrates the common-sense notion that children learn more and teachers are more effective in smaller classes.

In a new policy brief, professor Diane Whitmore Schanzenbach points out that class size reduction is an important determinant of student outcomes, one that can be directly determined by policy. The brief, Does Class Size Matter?, is published by the National Education Policy Center (NEPC) with funding from the Great Lakes Center for Education Research and Practice.
