Small Schools and Small Learning Communities. Policy Statement. Issue 4
National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform
The National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform recommends that national, state, and local policymakers provide resources and support to create small schools at the middle-grades level. In those cases where small schools are not feasible, the National Forum recommends that district and school leaders break down large middle-grades schools into smaller schools or small learning communities that create a personalized environment for teaching and learning. "Smallness," whether small learning communities or small schools, is a necessary but not sufficient organizational structure that enhances teaching and learning at the middle level.
