Summary:Given that previous findings on the social distribution of the effects of small classes have been mixed and inconclusive, in the present study I attempted to shed light on the mechanism through which small classes affect the achievement of low, and high-achieving students.I used data from a 4-year, large-scale, randomized experiment (project STAR) to examine the effects of small classes on the achievement gap.
