Class size is one of those topics in education that is always good for a lively debate. One might expect that the issue would have been settled once and for all when Hattie showed that class size reduction had a minor effect on student achievement. But the debate continues. Teachers still generally prefer smaller classes, while education researchers tend to follow Hattie’s idea that class size does not matter, delighting policymakers. My colleagues of this blog collective are as divided about this topic as everyone else (see category ‘klasgrootte’ = class size).
