A Descriptive Study of the Educational Resources of the Hartford Public Schools and Disparities with Other Districts.
Natriello, Gary
This document is a report on the educational resources of the Hartford (Connecticut) Public Schools and the disparities between the Hartford Public Schools and other school districts. The report uses a reanalysis of existing publicly available data, including published reports of the Connecticut State Department of Education and other state and federal agencies and organizations as well as documents provided by the Hartford and other school districts. The first of four major sections focuses on the social and economic conditions in the City of Hartford. The discussion establishes the context within which the school-age population of Hartford is growing up and the context within which the Hartford Public Schools function. It also describes the student human resources available to the schools. Section 2 details the resources of the schools in terms of a set of standard input and output categories used to examine schools and school districts. It describes the formal institutional resources brought to bear on the challenge of educating the youth of Hartford. Section 3 presents comparisons between the human and institutional resources of Hartford and other Connecticut public school districts. Finally, Section 4 examines conditions in the Hartford schools in light of educational standards established by the State of Connecticut. Contains 14 tables, 102 figures, and 192 references. (JB)
