Small Schools, Great Strides.
Bracey, Gerald W.
Phi Delta Kappan, v82 n5 p413-14 Jan 2001
Large high schools offer more specialized curricula, but are problematic. Experts think smaller schools raise minority/low-income student achievement, reduce violent and disruptive incidents, combat anonymity, increase attendance and graduation rates, and operate most cost-effectively. Recent studies corroborate these findings and small classes' returns to society. (MLH)
