Overview

This book addresses a simple question: Would larger school budgets actually boost student performance? Past research on this question suggests a striking paradox. Analysts typically find that extra spending plays only a negligible role in improving student achievement as measured on standardized tests. At the same time, other researchers find a clear and consistent pattern linking greater school spending with greater job market success among students who have benefited from higher spending. This book brings together leading scholars with a diversity of views on this important issue. Half the essays examine the relationship between educational resources and student achievement in school; the others evaluate evidence on the link between school resources and students' success after they enter the job market.
