Bickel, Robert; Howley, Craig
Education Policy Analysis Archives, v8 n22 2000
Studied the joint influence of school and district size on school performance in 367 schools with 8th grades and 298 schools with 11th grades in Georgia. Findings show substantial cross-level influences of school and district size at 8th grade and weaker influences at 11th grade, with equity effects strong at both grades and with a distinctive pattern of size interactions.
