Title:Comprehensive school reform: Meta-analytic evidence of black-white achievement gap narrowing
Organization:Education Policy Analysis Archives
Short Description:This meta-analysis extends a previous review of the achievement effects of comprehensive school reform (CSR) programs. That meta-analysis observed significant effects of well endowed and well-researched programs, but it did not account for race/ethnicity. This article synthesizes 34 cohort or quasi-experimental outcomes of studies that incorporated the policy-critical characteristic of race/ethnicity.
Annotation:This meta-analysis extends a previous review of the achievement effects of comprehensive school reform (CSR) programs. That meta-analysis observed significant effects of well endowed and well-researched programs, but it did not account for race/ethnicity. This article synthesizes 34 cohort or quasi-experimental outcomes of studies that incorporated the policy-critical characteristic of race/ethnicity. Findings: compared with matched traditional schools, the black-white achievement gap narrowed significantly more among students in CSR schools. In addition, the aggregate effects were large, substantially to completely eliminating the achievement gap between African American and non-Hispanic white students in elementary and middle schools.
