Document Number: 4260Comprehensive School Reform and Student Achievement: A Meta-Analysis - This report from the Center for Research on the Education of Students Placed At Risk (CRESPAR) reviews the research on "whole-school" or "comprehensive" reforms. The report examines the specific effects of 29 of the most widely implemented comprehensive school reform models. Schools with comprehensive reforms show that students outperformed approximately 55% of their counterparts in nonparticipating schools, earning higher scores on achievement tests, and the effects were most profound in schools that followed the models for five years or more.
