Small-School Benefits

New evidence that small schools work

A new study reminds us that only a few years ago, reducing the number of total students in a school was seen as a key weapon in the arsenal of urban school reform. This reminder suggests that perhaps small schools shouldn’t have been so quickly abandoned as a reform strategy.

 

In 2010, MDRC, a nonpartisan, New York-based research group, found that New York City students who attended small high schools were more likely to graduate than their counterparts who didn’t attend small schools. A new study confirms the previous findings. A second group of students who cycled through the city’s small schools also had a greater likelihood of graduating than students at other, comparable schools. Click the links to read more.
