Investment and Student Achievement: Money Matters When Equity is at Issue
The Burlington School Board will be discussing the budget on Tuesday evening at BHS in the cafeteria from 7-9 pm. It is important that discussions of investment keep in mind the impact of investment on achievement. The board will receive a copy of a policy brief from the James M. Jeffords Center based upon the research that was conducted by the Dr. Mathias.  The policy brief is based upon Mathias' 2009 longitudinal study of per pupil investment and student achievement.  The results of the study indicated statistically significant relationships between student outcomes and investment which grew stronger over time. The brief can be found at the following link:
