“In 2003, NYS Court of Appeals held that NYC class sizes too large to provide students with constitutional right to a sound basic education”
With the passing of the Contracts for Excellence law (C4E) in 2007 which allocated additional aid to high needs districts, NYC was required to produce a plan to actively reduce class room size in NYC public schools. Despite the C4E regulations, class size city wide for grades k-3 is now the largest it has been since 1998. Additionally, class size city wide for grades 4-8 are largest since 2002.
How does class size measure up in District 1?
