Mobility and the Achievement Gap.
Skandera, Hanna; Sousa, Richard
Hoover Digest: Research and Opinion on Public Policy, n3 p1-5 2002
Research indicates that low achievement scores relate significantly to high school mobility rates. One explanation for this relationship is curricular inconsistency. Some suggest that school choice could contribute to a solution by breaking the link between a child's home address and school address, thus allowing students to remain at one school despite moving. Others recommend a strong, coordinated core curriculum. (SM)
