Sustained Positive Effects on Graduation Rates Produced by New York City's Small Public High Schools of Choice - This policy brief is a follow-up to a study that evaluated the effects that small public high schools of choice had on improving academic progress and graduation rates for disadvantaged students in NYC. The original study followed one cohort of students through four years of high school. Results indicated that the small schools of choice increased student progress toward graduation during their first three years of high school and increased students' four-year graduation rates. This brief extends the analysis by one year and finds that the positive effects are sustainable behind the initial cohort. (MDRC, Jan 2012)...
