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

They are holding the permanent position for another teacher who will be doing her Practicum in the fall. The science content covered is earth, life, and physical.

The study’s lead author says the findings support the mission of the city’s “Culture of Calm” program, which has seen success in pairing at-risk Chicago students with adult mentors. The continuation of the program is in question, however, as federal stimulus money dwindles. Chicago Tribune
