School Context and the Academic Achievement of Students with Emotional Disturbance
Wiley, Andrew L.; Siperstein, Gary N.; Bountress, Kaitlin E.; Forness, Steven R.; Brigham, Frederick J.
Behavioral Disorders, v33 n4 p198-210 Aug 2008
The authors examined the academic characteristics of 140 elementary-aged students served under the category of emotional disturbance (ED) from schools that differed in income level, performance on state testing, and suspension rates. School income accounted for a large amount of the variance in the reading and math achievement of students with ED as measured by the Woodcock-Johnson III. However, relative academic performance (as measured by performance on state testing compared with same-school peers and teacher ratings of academic competence) was similar across school income levels. Implications for intervention research and eligibility practices for students with ED are discussed. (Contains 6 tables.)
