New York City’s failures and violations of law 
as regards class size

Leonie Haimson, Class Size Matters 
 
Contracts for Excellence
In April 2007, NY State settled the Campaign for Fiscal lawsuit by passingthe Contracts for Excellence (C4E) law. State agreed to send billions inadditional aid to NYC & other high needs school districts; which they wouldhave to spend in six approved areas, including class size reduction.*
In addition, NYC had to submit a plan to reduce class size in all grades.
In fall of 2007, the state approved DOE’s plan to reduce class sizes on
average to no more than 20 students per class in K-3; 23 in grades 4-8 and25 in core HS classes.
In return, NYS has sent $2.4 billion in C4E funds to NYC since 2007.
*other allowed programs include Time on Task; Teacher & Principal Quality; Middle & HS Restructuring; Full-Day Pre-K; & Model Programs for English Language Learners 
 
 Yet despite city’s promise, class sizes have risen
sharply in K-3; this year, the 5
