Some of you may not be aware that the incoming 5th grade class at James Fallon has 81 students currently enrolled. What this means to our children is more students to a classroom. Our children can be in classes of 27 or more per teacher.
The Institute of Education Sciences, the research arm of the US Department of Education, concludes that class size reduction is one of only four, evidence-based education reforms that have been shown to increase student achievement through rigorous, randomized experiments--the "gold standard" of research.
Reducing class size, particularly in the early grades, is one of the very few educational strategies proven to increase the learning and narrow the achievement gap.
