A Comment on "Poor School Funding, Child Poverty, and Mathematics Achievement."
Turner, Sarah E.
Educational Researcher, v29 n5 p15-18 Jun-Jul 2000
Critiques an article on poor school funding, child poverty, and mathematics achievement, suggesting it distorts the interpretation of prior research and presents a flawed interpretation of new research. Hypothesizes that the level of school funding and incidence of childhood poverty exert substantial, independent causal effects on student achievement. Recommends further research on the relationship between school resources and student outcomes. (SM)
