Iacovou, Maria
Education Economics, v10 n3 p261-90 Dec 2002
Uses data from the National Child Development Study to estimate the effects of class size. Finds a significant and sizeable association between smaller classes and higher attainment in reading in the early years of schools when using instrumental-variables estimates, with class size instrumented by the interaction between school size and school type.
