I Will Not Yell "Fire" in a Crowded Classroom

Don't miss the NY Times article on the ever-evolving 13-year-old CFE lawsuit.

And don't miss Class Size Matters' more complete interpretation, which jibes a lot more with what I see every day:

Despite Dennis Walcott’s assertion..., the city does not intend to use the CFE funds to provide “reduced class sizes for all students”. The administration intends to use only 2% of these funds for smaller classes, and to lower average class size in K-3 -- and in these grades, only to 20. The state comptroller found last year that if the city was using the state class size reduction funds appropriately, classes would be already down to 19.1 on average in these grades.
