Abstract

Growing evidence in the United Kingdom and the United States supports that a relationship between small classes and pupil attainment exists, that is, as class sizes reduce, pupil attainment rises (Blatchford & Mortimer, 1994; Blatchford, Bassett, Goldstein & Martin, 2003; Molnar et al., 1999; Smith, Molner & Zahorik, 2003).
