The Distribution of School Resources and Their Effect Upon Achievement--An Intradistrict Approach.
Carey, Dennis C.
Thirteen elementary and four middle schools in a large, suburban district are compared by level of instructional expenditure and socioeconomic status of the community served by each school. Regression analysis is utilized to determine the effect of expenditure on student achievement over a three-year period. Variables significantly related to achievement are included in the model. At both the elementary and middle school levels, the impact of previous achievment and intelligence test results explained most of the variance. The percentage of variance explained by dollar input was minimal. Policy implications are discussed with reference to litigation and parallel research. (Author/MLF)
