Factors Correlated with Educational Attainment
Applied Analysis has been asked by the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce to examine various aspects of Nevada’s system of elementary and secondary education in public schools (“K-12”). One such aspect is the extent to which student achievement is related or unrelated to socio-economic factors and/or measures of school operations, including, without limitation, financial resources. This briefing examines the most commonly cited factors, analyzing each against student performance on standardized exams and graduation rates in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
