Gains are stronger for students who come from groups that are traditionally disadvantaged in education — minorities and immigrants. By effectively using these adults, schools can improve morale for teachers and provide the necessary attention for students. The evidence on class size, Earning and Learning: How Schools Matter, 131—168.Education Week, April 9, 2008. Although most studies do show a relationship between small class size and increased student achievement, researchers disagree on how to interpret the results.

Targeting of specific classes and specific year levels for CSR. 3 students for every teacher. A recent long-term follow-up of STAR participants into adulthood utilized IRS tax records to investigate a range of outcomes. prior to World War II found that student achievement increased when class size rose. Here are the most interesting insights from their research:• But the evidence is not entirely clear cut.

Many creditable and Class size and instruction reviewed research projects have concluded that extra gains associated with long-term attendance in small classes in the early grades appeared not only for tests of measured achievement, but also for other measures of success in education and that these gains continued to appear when students — including students that are traditionally disadvantaged in education - were returned to standard classes in the upper grades.

Research summary Despite there being a large literature on class-size effects on academic achievement, only a few studies are of high enough quality and sufficiently relevant to be given credence as a basis for legislative action. How much attention do students at your school get? This is not meant to be political.

Class Size

Although only 1 percent of Class size and instruction teachers hired with federal CSR funds were special education teachers, 16 percent of districts reported coordinating their CSR program with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act IDEA.

Long-Term Success The benefits of smaller classes extend beyond test scores and student engagement. Professional development for all staff involved will increase their knowledge of, and preparedness to use, techniques that are particularly suited to small class environments;• All other studies of CSR generate either smaller estimates of the effects of variation in class size or find no effects at all.

3 billion, the grade span was expanded to include kindergarten, and the proportion of funds potentially available for professional development increased from 15 percent to 25 percent, whereas the portion required to be used on teacher salaries correspondingly decreased from a minimum of 82 to 72 percent. Dee and West used a nationally representative database of students to compare the outcomes of the same eighth-grade students who had attended different size classes in different subjects.

Whitehurst does not estimate costs, but finds effects on student achievement from choosing more effective curriculum; reconstituting the teacher workforce for example by substituting Teach for America teachers for new teachers from traditional training routes ; and enrolling students in popular charter schools in urban areas that are all as large or larger than those obtained from CSR.

Class size is just one factor to consider when evaluating your school. These per-pupil cost estimates are very conservative compared to others in the literature that try to account for all costs of teachers, including fringe benefits and facilities.
