Over the past several years, states have come under increased pressure to improve the academic achievement of all students in their schools. As states have looked for ways to accomplish this task, more and more have turned to class size reduction, particularly in the early elementary grades. In this paper, we summarize evidence from two well-known, state-sponsored class size reduction initiatives and consider why these initiatives produced such different results. The approaches to class size reduction taken by these states provide lessons for other states that might be considering such programs. (Contains 7 footnotes.)
