    A well funded school is a better performing school right?Not according to research results from W Norton Grubb author of this book The Money Myth School Resources Outcomes and Euity Russell Sage Foundation 2009 Fortunately for the tough times ahead Grubb’s close analysis of 12 years of data reveals this good news schools don’t need a major influx of new funds to improve They just need to do the right things which often involves reallocating the funds they’ve already gotWith specific new evidence of what creates healthy strong schools and successful educated students W Norton Grubb—a highly regarded social scientist on education resources effectiveness and euity—shows why some schools thrive and others fail

    I am interested in this topic intellectually and work in a field tangentially related to education but even I have found this to be eating my vegetables There are some interesting topics in here and the conclusions drawn from statistics contradict much of the political opinions of the left and the right eg relative influence of parents' human capital small class sizes on outcomesHowever when the writer has to confess his limitations by advising the reader to skip over certain statistics intensive parts along the way you know you need to have a lot of patience Unfortunately even the summary conclusions are not easy to get through and reading a book like this reminds me of how difficult writing isSo if you are a serious PhD candidate and are used to academic ese or a think tank policy person looking to pluck a piece of education research there may be material for you But if you are a school board member principal or teacher I would prepare myself for a tough slog
