Intradistrict Resource Allocation: Key Findings and Policy Implications
Houck, Eric A.
Education and Urban Society, v43 n3 p271-295 May 2011
The focus on school-level performance brought about by the No Child Left Behind Act--as well as recent court cases challenging the use of race in student assignment policies--has brought greater attention to the need to for careful study of the allocation of resources within school districts. This paper describes the policy context, reviews key intradistrict studies, and proffers three extensions to the field of intradistrict resource analysis: consideration of teacher labor markets, consideration of the resource implications of peer effects, and the use of additional statistical methods such as quantile regression. Taken together, these topics have the promise to extend the field of intradsitrict resource allocation. (Contains 2 figures and 5 notes.)
