ERIC Clearinghouse on Educational Management, Eugene, OR.
The 11 items in this annotated bibliography are entries in the ERIC system concerning studies of school effectiveness and the debate surrounding how much influence schools have over student learning. Several articles included reexamine the 1966 Coleman report, and one compares a more recent Coleman report with the earlier report. A number of studies cited explore what makes exemplary schools outstanding. Influences on school effectiveness identified by these studies include school climate or norms, strong school leadership, high expectations for students, smaller classes, more experienced teachers, student motivation, quality of the home environment, academic emphasis, and teacher skills. Some articles also explore the validity of research techniques used to determine school effectiveness. (JM)
