Best of the Web: Class size

Class size

— There is little doubt that smaller classes generally are better than larger classes, but even here, the school district has far less to spend per student than the elite private schools.

The relevant question is not what works but what gets the biggest improvement for the money.

I think the answer is not smaller classes for the sake of smaller classes. It is possible in some subjects the student/teacher interaction is more important than in others.

I'd rather the school district spend more money on programs that have shown success elsewhere than just to cram down the average class size.
