Suggests that RAND's claims to have overturned conventional research wisdom on connections between school expenditures, class size, teacher pay, and student achievement are highly problematic, explaining that its report drew sweeping conclusions from average statewide data from just 44 states, and the data analysis is subject to significant analytical error. Notes worrisome conflicts between Rand I and Rand II research. (SM)
