Is Free-Meal Entitlement a Valid Measure of School Intake Characteristics?
Croxford, Linda
Educational Research and Evaluation: An International Journal on Theory and Practice, v6 n4 p317-35 Dec 2000
Examined the association between free meal entitlement (FME) and the socioeconomic characteristics of schools in Scotland using a national survey of school leavers (n=8,545). Results suggest that FME is an inconsistent measure of poverty and only a partial proxy for socioeconomic circumstances. (SLD)
