An overview of recent research on the effects of class size, particularly in the early grades, kindergarten through grade 3, on the academic performance and behavior of students at risk. It emphasizes one recent large-scale investigation, Tennessee's Project STAR (Student-Teacher Achievement Ratio). This report is more evaluative than most reviews of research, emphasizing the strengths and weaknesses of the studies cited. Chapters: research on the academic effects of small class size; assessing the costs and benefits of smaller classes; instructional practice and student behavior; and research priorities. References.
