Three Reviews of Contemporary Research Literature: Class Size, Open Plan Schools, Flexible-Modular Scheduling. Research Report Number 1973-1.
National School Boards Association, Washington, DC.
Educators and educational policy-makers frequently resort to three strategies for improving student achievement and for improving the quality of the learning environment in schools: (1) reducing the number of students per class, (2) revising the use of school space, and (3) revising the schedule of student and teacher time. These reviews of contemporary research literature on class size, open plan schools, and flexible-modular scheduling may suggest to educators and educational policy-makers that changes in the use of space and the use of student and teacher time may be more effective than reducing class size.
