What Research Says About Schools and School Districts...Factors Related to Effectiveness. A Report.
Fonstad, Clifton, Comp.
The research findings and literature compiled and summarized in this report seek to identify those characteristics possessed by school districts that are associated with quality education and effective utilization of resources. The report is designed to serve as a resource for those involved in evaluating present school district and school organization structure and in planning to improve education through the development of stronger, more effective educational administrative units and attendance centers. The findings should be of equal interest to educators, school board members, government officials, parents, and other electors interested in improving education. Following an initial narrative report on research in educational planning, twelve summary tables of research findings are provided. These tables offer data on factors related to elementary, junior, and senior high schools; comparative findings between high school size and (1) pupil achievement, (2) per pupil costs, (3) curricular offerings, (4) staff qualifications, (5) extracurricular programs, and (6) miscellaneous factors; factors related to school size in general; educational administrative unit size; and State enrollment guidelines for administrative units. A 140-item bibliography is included. (Author/EA)
