California Watch’s report on class size increasing in kindergarten through third grade—also carried in broadcast form on KQED’s The California Report—is generating wide interest across the state.

As a follow up to the report, KQED’s Forum live call-in program will devote an hour to the topic tomorrow (Friday November 20) beginning at 10 a.m. The programs are a product of a new, innovative arrangement between KQED and the Center for Investigative Reporting, in which the two organizations will collaborate on multiple reporting projects during the year.

California Watch director Louis Freedberg, co-author of the report, will participate as a guest on in the program. Other guests will be Norton Grubb, UC Berkeley professor Norton Grubb, Sheila Jordan, Alameda County Superintendent of Schools, and Camille Haroldsen, a third grade teacher from Watsonville.
