A District of a Certain Size: An Exploration of the Debate on School Size.
Webb, Florence R.
Education and Urban Society, v21 n2 p125-39 Feb 1989
Argues against the notion that all school districts should be the same size. Research on fiscal efficiency and school effectiveness does not express a consensus regarding the long-term effects or organizational implications of district size, and the country still has a range of district types. There should be more research on community identity. (BJV)
