Central City School Administrative Policy: Systematically Passing Undeserving Students.
Brasington, David M.
Economics of Education Review, v18 n2 p201-12 Apr 1999
Many view central-city schools as bloated, inefficient institutions that pass students through the system regardless of performance. A least-squares analysis of 602 Ohio schools upholds this view. Although inner-city schools depress standardized test scores, more students graduate than expected. Social promotion may be responsible. (27 references) (MLH)
