Smaller Class Size: Raising the Academic Performance of Children from Low- and Moderate-Income Families. Family Review.
Journal of Early Education and Family Review, v6 n2 p6-7 Nov-Dec 1998
Highlights federal funding to reduce class size to improve academic performance, particularly for low-income and minority students. Details three studies, as well as teacher reports supporting the benefits of smaller class size. Suggests that reducing class size represents a preventive rather than remedial approach, but that class size must go below 20 students to make a real difference. (HTH)
