I choose to be passive aggressive and will not link to the AP article that outlines the GOP’s long-term plan to reduce class sizes in grades K-3.
A recent Brookings Institute report, Class Size: What Research Says and What it Means for State Policy, pointed out that schools can realize meaningful increases in student achievement if they reduce class sizes by 7-10 students. According to Sen. Phil Berger, the GOP wants to reduce classes from 18 students to 15 students, but research suggests that they would need to reduce average class sizes to 8-11 students to produce sizable, long-term gains. Are Republicans prepared to double the size of the teacher workforce in grades K-3?
By the way, Democrats have a long-term plan to reduce class sizes too.
