Does class size actually matter?
from By Patrick Gleeson
From Oct. 17:
Most parents agree that kids are going to learn better and faster in a smaller class than in a large one. But not everyone agrees that this is so, despite the fact that the largest study on the effect of class size to date demonstrates that "small classes appear to benefit all kinds of students in all kinds of schools." One of the more trenchant critiques appeared in 2018 in the technological- and education-oriented THE Journal, which concluded that "class size doesn’t matter," and that in at least one area, mathematics, outcomes improved as class sizes increased.
