Elementary school size: a study to determine the optimum size of the elementary school.

The question of how best to provide an environment which enhances the probability of a superior education for children in the schools has plagued educational leaders for decades. Governing boards and their administrative agents have long pondered such problems as the ideal textbook, the best teaching method, the most desirable curriculum offerings, and the almost overwhelming task of financing an educational program which they believe is adequate. These are, of course, issues about which leaders in education should be concerned. However, simply because learning is a complex process, one would be hard pressed to name all of the problems faced by those leaders. This study attempted to delineate one of those matters.
