Abstract

In many countries over the world, there has been a hotly contested and widely reported debate over the educational consequences of class-size differences. In this article, we address: (1) whether class size differences affect children's educational attainment and learning, (2) whether class size affects classroom processes like teaching and pupil behavior, and (3) educational implications, in particular ways in which teachers can make the most of small (and large) classes. We provide an international perspective and provide suggestions for future research. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
