While studies suggest that there is a correlation between class size and student performance, the extent of this correlation is, as of ye,t unknown. This unknown quality is what has justified maintaining reduced class sizes, for the expenditure of hiring additional teachers and equipping them in order to reduce the size of the average classroom is a costly procedure that requires extensive validation. If there is a statistically significant increase in student performance in classes with a reduced size, this then arguably validates reducing class size. The evidence thus far suggests that there is a statistically significant increase in performance and that steps should be taken to reduce class size.
