Citywide class size trends since 1998

Here is a summary of class size trends in NYC public schools, for all grade levels.  For district specific trends, please email us info@classsizematters.org

In short, though the state’s highest court concluded in 2003 that smaller classes were needed for NYC students to receive their constitutional right to a sound basic education, class sizes are even larger now, particularly in the early grades.

Since 2007, average NYC class sizes have increased sharply and continue to be 13-30% larger than class sizes in the rest of the state.  This fall, there are more than 336,000 students in classes of thirty or more.
