Are Small Schools Better?

Recent research, along with common sense, indicates that smaller schools do far better for a child’s education than those that are larger or overcrowded. The rationale is simple to digest: smaller schools lead to smaller classrooms, which means teachers have more quality time and interaction with their students. These findings fly in the face of a particular school of thought that gained popularity about 50 years ago, that larger schools would offer students a broader diversity of study subjects, as well as classmates. The unfortunate trade-off to this is that less and less students are able to forge relationships with their teachers, which most people agree is the most important aspect of obtaining a good education.
