Editorial Reviews

"Delavan makes his case well and he handles the overall issues on class size very well. This is a unique book. No one has brought together this large body of literature and work on class size. The references are solid, thorough, and impressive."
Jerome Rabow, Professor Emeritus, University of California, Los Angeles, and Lecturer, California State University, Northridge
