NYSASBO Releases Report on Growing Student Achievement and Resource Gap
NYSASBO has released a new report entitled Achievement and Resource Gap Widens: More Students Left Behind. The report examines the connections between student outcomes and school funding. The findings show that students in high-need school districts enter high school significantly less prepared and graduate at much lower rates than students in low-need school districts. The report uses graduation data released on February 10th for an up-to-date picture of the enduring achievement gaps. These findings hold true for all regions of the state and in urban, suburban, and rural school districts. The links between student outcomes and fiscal capacity are even more pronounced when school districts are ranked in ten equal groups based on property and income wealth.
