Examines relationships between student mobility and student and school performance, based on data for 6,000 Texas schools. One out of six students changed schools at least once during 1994-95. Over a four-year period, two-thirds of first-graders moved at least once. Mobility rates are higher for poorer, at-risk, and minority students. Mobile students' academic performance is worse than stable students' performance. (24 references) (MLH)
