Conclusive research has shown the benefits of small class size (1:15), especially for primary grades. Large-scale projects in Indiana and Tennessee and numerous smaller studies found that youngsters in small classes obtain higher test scores, participate more eagerly, demonstrate improved behavior, and retain these benefits in later schooling years. Developing appropriately sized classes is essential. (12 references) (MLH)
