Class Size, School Size and Meaningful Student Involvement

Class size and school size are issues that can be benefitted by and examined through the lenses of Meaningful Student Involvement.

What It Is

The number of students to teachers, called “student/teacher ratios,” has been shown to affect how well students learn.  Many advocates call for smaller class size, while others claim size makes little difference.  School consolidation, where small schools in local communities are merged into a single large school for a large surrounding area, has been happening since the 1940s. Now many of those larger schools are being closed, such as in New York City, to create smaller schools.
