Small Classes Not Necessary For Academic Sucess

Last updated on Monday, October 3, 2011

(UNDATED) - Smaller class sizes don’t necessarily lead to greater academic achievement.

Bill Stanczykiewicz, president and CEO of the Indiana Youth Institute, says demographics, including a student's race and socioeconomic status, may play a bigger role in determining academic gains.
