- In some circumstances, smaller class sizes can have a positive impact on students’ performance on standardized tests
- Results vary depending on how reductions are implemented, including the size of the reduction
- Reducing average class size in Florida by a few students did not lead to such improvements when compared to schools with no reduction
In this episode of EdTalk, host Alex Granados talks with Matt Chingos, an education policy research and director of the Urban Institute’s education policy program, about K-3 class size reductions. Chingos studied the implementation of reductions in Florida and elsewhere and shares what he learned about this strategy.
