Benefits of Smaller Class Sizes Western North CarolinaAlmost all studies show the benefits of smaller class sizes regardless of the subject matter or grade level. Smaller class sizes are linked to better long-term performance, stronger teacher retention and overall student achievement, particularly for younger, less advantaged kids, according to research.

The advantages of having fewer students in a classroom include the following:

  • One-on-one instruction
  • Students don’t fall through the cracks
  • Improved community and class culture
  • Better teacher/student relationships
  • Students have more opportunities to be engaged
  • Teachers can cover more material
  • The classroom is less hectic
  • Teachers are less stressed
  • Student issues are easier to identify

With the overwhelming evidence in favor of smaller class sizes, shouldn't we owe it to instructors and students to make sure that learning occurs in the more encouraging environment that smaller classes enable?

For better academic results, content teaching, and eventually a more educated population, educators, parents, school districts, and the government should prioritize promoting smaller classes. The benefits of smaller class sizes are evident and crucial in obtaining a solid education.
