What effect does class size have on average students?

What effect does class size have on average students?
A three-year expansion of class sizes in Clark County, Nev., has educators worried about achievement among average students. They say as many as 40% of students will either excel or struggle regardless of class size. For students who fall in the middle, however, overcrowded classes and a lack of one-on-one interaction with teachers can make a difference. Some, however, say that a quality teacher is more important than class size. Las Vegas Sun

Can more classroom time improve student learning?
Educators at a K-12 charter school in the Los Angeles area say an expanded school calendar has helped boost student test scores and improved attendance and graduation rates. Supporters say such calendars are especially beneficial for low-income students, who may lack other academic and cultural opportunities. Others say the benefits of extended classroom time are dependent on whether the time is used for high-quality teaching and programming. Los Angeles Times
