Industry Reviews

"Achilles undertakes three basic tasks: he presents the considerable research done in the US on class size and student outcomes, tracks educators' and public policy makers' interest in implementing these research findings, and analyzes the case for school improvement through use of small classes. Achilles never places his position above detractors' and thus encourages the reader's individual decision making." -- P. M. Socoski, University of Florida * CHOICE, 2000 *
