The Effects of Changing Social Contexts: A Study of Students Who Transferred Between High Schools
Anderson, Barry D.; And Others
Urban Education, 10, 4, 333-356, Jan 76

Concludes that the large-scale manipulation of social contexts to secure increased academic performance may not be justifiable on grounds of effectiveness or efficiency. (Author/AM)
