A panel of Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE) grantees discussed their research findings on the civic and academic outcomes of small school reform. Among their findings were that students in social studies classrooms that encourage discussion of issues faired better on civic knowledge tests than their peers; excessive tracking was a homogenizing factor in high schools; there was a strong correlation between classroom content and student commitment to civic engagement; and students in small schools were more likely than students in larger schools to participate in activities and volunteer. Following their remarks, the panelists responded to questions and comments from members of the audience. Mr. Lopez moderated the panel. close
