The Effects of School within a School on the Academic Achievement of Sophomore Students.
Hawkins, Norman E., Jr.
The effects of a "school within a school" on the academic achievement of high school sophomores were studied in a Chicago (Illinois) inner-city public school, the Tilden Community Academy and its Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (JROTC) program (school within the school). Of the 228 tenth graders, 49 were enrolled in the JROTC program and 179 were not. Thirty students were selected from each group, and their scores on the Tests of Achievement and Proficiency (TAP) were compared. No significant differences were seen in student mathematics and reading TAP scores in 1994 or 1995. The school within a school in this instance appears to have no effect on mathematics and reading achievement. (Contains one table and nine references.) (SLD)
