Teachers Matter. Yes. Schools Matter. Yes. Districts Matter--Really?
Phi Delta Kappan, v97 n2 p14-20 Oct 2015
School districts shape the conditions in which schools operate and as such can support or undermine school success and thus student success. All of which is to say that school districts matter. This article looks at the success of two districts whose low-income and minority students beat the odds in academic achievement. Lessons from these districts can apply broadly to districts across the nation.
