This evaluation of California’s first full year of its class size reduction effort draws on survey results and interviews with district and school staffs to examine how class size reduction has affected special populations, teacher credentials and distribution, teachers’ classroom practices, and parental involvement.

The report also examines the implementation challenges schools have faced as they reduce class sizes.
