Study: 1 in 4 first-grade classes reach high-quality standards
Only 23% of first-grade classes were considered of high quality for their academic, social and emotional climate, according to a study of 820 classrooms published in the Elementary School Journal. An additional 31% were socially supportive but of low academic quality, while the rest were rated as either mediocre (28%) or of low quality (17%).
