Abstract:Also, a student who moves from a low-resourced school to a high-resourced school is predicted to improve on later math and reading tests, while an accompanying change in the home situation (increase in income and parent education, and/or an increase in student and parent ties with others in the school community), can improve these academic results even more. These changes do not appear to be common however, as students tend to move to new schools that are strikingly similar to their previous school.
