After leveling the demographic playing field, this five-day series analyzed standardized test scores to determine the effectiveness of individual Omaha public schools. It found schools that consistently did better than their student demographics would have predicted, and it found schools that fell short. The series then examined the characteristics of successful schools to determine what set them apart from the rest: experienced and effective teachers, better discipline in the classroom, parental and community involvement and an aggressive focus on self-improvement.
