Pupil-Teacher Ratios and the Use of Research Findings in Educational Policy-Making.
Coleman, Peter
This report examines the issue of student teacher ratios as a focus for a discussion on the utilization of social science research findings by policymakers. The author notes that such findings on the issue of student teacher ratios are in agreement on the fact that minor changes in the ratio are insignificant. Notwithstanding, educational policymakers seldom acknowledge these findings; and teachers' spokesmen press for reductions in class size. The paper concludes with a review of recent findings of research on student teacher ratios and suggests some conclusions and implications for policymakers. (Author)
