The Good School District: A Critical Examination of the Adequacy of Student Achievement and Per Pupil Expenditures as Measures of School District Effectiveness.
Coleman, Peter
Journal of Education Finance, v12 n1 p71-96 Sum 1986
Asserts that achievement and cost measures of school districts' effectiveness are useful but insufficient performance critera. Focusing on British Columbia, Canada, this paper demonstrates a surprising negative relationship between cost and achievement and seeks a third element--school ethos or goodness--as a potential predictor of school effectiveness. Includes 7 tables and 33 references. (MLH)
