The End of "Keyes": Resegregation Trends and Achievement in Denver Public Schools
Horn, Catherine L.; Kurlaender, Michal
Civil Rights Project at Harvard University
This report describes the academic achievement trends of students in Denver's elementary schools from 1994 to 2000. It begins with a brief introduction to the original 1973 Keyes decision and the path to its conclusion in 1995. It then presents a chronology of the standardized measures of academic achievement used by the Denver Public Schools and provides a descriptive longitudinal analysis of school-level Iowa Test of Basic Skills math performance (one of the standardized measures used by the district) for elementary schools in the district. The paper concludes with policy implications of the findings. (Contains 12 footnotes, 11 figures, and 2 tables.) [Funding for this work was provided by the Piton Foundation.]
