The literature review, Class Size Reduction: What the Literature Suggests About what Works (PDF) is now available with a stand alone Executive Summary (PDF). This review includes analyses of over eighty reports and articles from a variety of Canadian and international sources, along with five in-depth descriptions of large-scale class size reduction initiatives. It was conducted as part of a CEA research study on The Effects of the Ontario Primary Class Size Reduction Policy. The final report, with findings and implications, will be released early in 2009.
