How many students would be too big for a single classroom? What kind of impact do those classes have on learning? Professor Nina Bascia, chair of OISE’s Department of Leadership, Higher and Adult Education (LHAE) appeared on CBC Radio’s Ontario Today to answer those questions with host Rita Celli.

Bascia, who previously served as chair of the department of Theory and Policy Studies (TPS) and associate chair of both the TPS and LHAE, has broad research interests – including educational policy analysis and program evaluation; organizational and social contexts of teaching and administration; and teacher leadership and development. Recently, she has taken on research projects that address class size reduction and relationships between teacher unions and governments around educational reform.

Listen to Professor Bascia on CBC Radio’s Ontario Today.
