Hess, Frederick M., Ed.; Manno, Bruno V., Ed. – Harvard Education Press, 2011
This ambitious book aims to reorient discussions about school reform by moving away from "whole school" solutions to customized services and products.

Numerous studies have examined how grade retention can impede the academic success of those retained students. One uncharted line of research is the spillover effect that retained students may exert on their classmates. The purpose of this study is to evaluate this relationship for students in urban elementary school classrooms. To do so, this…

The influence that students with special educational needs may exert on the schooling outcomes of their siblings without special educational needs has been given minimal attention in published research. Hence, the authors bring forth a unique contribution by evaluating the within-family effects of being a child without special educational needs in…

Gottfried, Michael A. – American Journal of Education, 2011
There is evidence suggesting that missing school negatively relates to academic achievement. However, it is a difficult task to derive unbiased empirical estimates of absences in their influence on performance. One particular challenge arises from the unobserved heterogeneity in the family environment, which may relate to both absence behavior and…

Gottfried, Michael A. – American Educational Research Journal, 2010
Researchers, policymakers, practitioners, and parents have assumed a positive relationship between school attendance and academic success. And yet, among the vast body of empirical research examining how input factors relate to academic outcomes, few investigations have honed in on the precision of the relationship between individual attendance…

Gottfried, Michael A. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2009
The literature on school absences has focused predominantly on the reasons for student truancy, or it has assessed only aggregate student absences in their effect on achievement. However, this study brings forth a new issue: the relationship between types of absences--excused versus unexcused--and school performance. With a quantitative model of…

Gottfried, Michael A. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2009
This paper will address several gaps in the literature. First, those studies that have attempted to hone in on the relationship between student attendance and achievement in K-12 education have been conducted only at the aggregate level of analysis. Although these papers have provided insight into how attendance may be related to achievement,…

Aggregate research has not been decisive, nor have many studies analyzed education institutions. I begin with a theoretical model of crowding-out versus crowding-in donor behavior. I then employ a fixed effects…
