NEW YORK -- Improving American education is simple: reduce class sizes. Or so Mitt Romney once thought. "I once thought classroom size was … [the] only thing I could do to make our schools better," he said Tuesday while speaking at Education Nation, programming organized by NBC News.

Then, the Republican presidential candidate read a McKinsey report. "Within a normal band of a population, the classroom size didn't seem to be driving the quality of education," Romney said he learned from the report. He mentioned the McKinsey story in his book, "No Apology: The Case for American Greatness."
