Impact of Chicagońˇ╗s Small High School Initiative
Lisa Barrow (au); Diane Whitmore Schanzenbach (au); Any Claessens (au)
This study examines the effects of the introduction of new small high schools on student performance in the Chicago Public School (CPS) district. Specifically, the authors investigate whether students attending small high schools have better graduation/enrollment rates and achievement than similar students who attend regular CPS high schools. They show that students who choose to attend a small school are more disadvantaged on average, including having prior test scores about 0.2 standard deviations lower than their elementary school classmates. The distance-to-small-school variable has strong predictive power to identify who attends a small school. The authors find that small schools students are substantially more likely to persist in school and eventually graduate. Nonetheless, there is no positive impact on student achievement as measured by test scores. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
