From my own experience teaching third and fifth grade children I can
say that when my class sizes were 18 and below I *felt* like it was a
much better learning atmosphere. I *thought* the kids were learning
more. And I *know* that discipline was much less a concern. Assuming
that fewer disruptions usually translates into more learning, for that
reason alone I would advocate lower student-to-teacher ratios.

A good research case can be made for smaller class sizes, particularly below
15 students. Not all of the court acceptable research will be found in
practice in schools.
