New report analyzes educational productivity
| Jan 25, 2011
The Center for American Progress has released Return on Educational Investment: A district-by-district evaluation of U.S. educational productivity, the first-ever attempt to analyze the productivity of almost every major school district in the country. The study, by Senior Fellow Ulrich Boser, measures the academic achievement a school district produces relative to its educational spending, while controlling for factors outside a district’s control, such as cost of living and students in poverty.
The report includes productivity ratings of more than 9,000 districts as well as detailed information on district achievement and spending in 46 states. To learn more and access the report, visit the Center for American Progress website.
