Estimates assume that 10 percent of program funds will support
teacher testing and professional development, with the remainder
funding class-size reduction. Estimates further assume that 75
percent of teachers hired will be beginning teachers and 25
percent will be reentry teachers. Estimated average cost of
teachers hired (including salary and benefits) under these
assumptions is $35,000. Source: 1993-94 Schools and Staffing

__________________________

A 1998 U.S. Department of Education report, "Reducing Class Size:
What Do We Know?" points to research showing that reducing class
size is related to increased student learning. Studies have shown
that smaller class sizes result in increased student achievement,
a reduction in discipline problems and increased instructional
time for teachers, and are most important in early grades, and for
disadvantaged and minority students. This report can be found on
the U.S. Department of Education's web site at
http://www.ed.gov/pubs/ReducingClass.
