A significant aspect of learning entails knowing how to take intelligent risks and how to recover from them when they do not pay off. For this you need intimacy, support, and recognition all of which can happen when class sizes are small. The same is true for the more joyful aspects of teaching and learning, which depend to a large extent on how closely we can share our sense of curiosity and wonder. — Glenda Carpio, Professor of English and African and African American Studies
