Mamo, Michael – Journal of Education Finance, 2022

DeAngelis, Karen J.; Brent, Brian O.; Xu, Caiqun – Journal of Education Finance, 2022
There is mounting evidence that school counselors positively affect students' academic and behavioral outcomes.

Thus far, little empirical work documents the distribution of school…
