Chicago Public Schools and Student Achievement.
Sander, William
Urban Education, v36 n1 p27-38 Jan 2001
Investigated whether Chicago public school students were disadvantaged relative to students in other Illinois schools after accounting for background factors. Data on test scores, dropout rates, and school, community, and family characteristics indicated that Chicago's grade schools performed comparably to other schools, but Chicago's high schools had much higher dropout rates and lower reading scores than other schools.
