International Education Studies, v1 n4 p3-9 Nov 2008
Students in a first year Master's degree seminar were asked to find the answer to the question "Do Class and School Size Matter as A Crucial Issue to School Improvement?" The paper the students wrote is based on a review of the literature. The students determined that the question had several issues to be addressed before they could answer the question. The issues researched were: Student to Teacher Ratio, Resource Availability, Test Scores, Minority students, Extracurricular Activities, Attitude, and Security. The research then led them to make a discussion of Class size, Schools within Schools, Small Schools, and Small is not Better.
