Center for Collaborative Education
New research conducted by Boston's Center for Collaborative Education documents significant achievement by students who attend the city's Pilot Schools. Pilot School students are performing better than the district averages across every indicator of student engagement and performance, including the statewide standardized assessment (MCAS). In other standard measures, Pilot School students show better rates of attendance and fewer out-of-school suspensions, and more go on to attend university or technical college after they graduate. Five appendices are included: (1) Methods; (2) Methods for School Characteristics; (3) 2003-04 Pilot School Outcomes by School; (4) Boston Pilot Schools/Horace Mann Network Vision Statement; and Principles and Practices; and (5) School Lists. (Contains 40 footnotes.)
