Class sizes in District 15 are growing. Join the PS 39 Parent Association on Thursday, March 31 @ 7 pm in Room 103 for a discussion with Leonie Haimson, founder and executive director of Class Size Matters, an organization that advocates for smaller classes in NYC's public schools and the nation as a whole.
The New York Times has called Class Size Matters the "city's leading proponent of smaller classes." They are dedicated to providing information on the significant and wide-ranging benefits of smaller classes, particularly for at-risk children, to boost student learning, engagement, and graduation rates, and lower disciplinary referrals.Class Size Matters also advocates for alleviating school overcrowding and works for more parent decision-making in education policy, including student privacy.
