Dumbing Down by Sizing Up.
Howley, Craig
School Administrator, v54 n9 p24-26,28,30 Oct 1997
Professional educators may be behind the times in their thinking about school size. Many educational leaders mistakenly believe that large schools provide better learning environments at less cost than smaller schools. Actually, there are few conclusive before-and-after consolidation studies, consolidation does not seem to save money, and small schools seem particularly productive for poor kids. Nonmonetary "diseconomies" of scale can plague larger schools. (MLH)
