The Resource Equalizing Effects of School and Student Time Allocations.
Garner, William T.
School-related time allocations of students, including time at home, as reported in sample surveys of students, teachers, and parents, are examined for systematic relations to socioeconomic indicators, controlling for ability. Special attention is paid to teacher-influenced student time allocations such as instructional time and homework. The aim is to discover whether school-influenced student time allocations vary systematically by socioeconomic status, and whether any such variation tends to reinforce or reduce the resource equalizing effects of school funds allocations. The theoretical and research background for this study derives from human capital, school finance, and pedagogical literature. (Author/MLF)
