Top schools not necessarily producing best scores

Mary B. Pasciak and Andrew Bailey of The Buffalo News analyzed fourth-grade standardized test scores from the area to find that "top performing schools - those that get the most from their students regardless of family income - often are the ones teaching students who have the least ... These top schools didn't necessarily have the best raw test scores, although some did. But when adjusted for poverty, their scores were all well above what they would be expected to achieve given the economic background of their pupils." The Buffalo News also found that schools spending the most money are not necessarily producing the best students.
