How Crowded are Our Schools?

Available at: http://www.classsizematters.org/principalsurveyresults.html

Fifty-four percent of principals say that the enrollment at their own school is not capped at a level to prevent overcrowding.  Fifty percent say that overcrowding sometimes leads to unsafe conditions for students or staff; 43% observe that overcrowding makes it difficult for students and/or staff to get to class on time.  Eighty six percent believe that class sizes at their schools are too large to provide a quality education – and that the primary factors that prevent them from reducing class size are a lack of control over enrollment and space.  More than one fourth (26%) of all middle and high school principals say that overcrowding makes it difficult for their students to receive the credits and/or courses needed to graduate on time.
