Comprehensive 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. (Geoffrey D. Borman, Gina M. Hewes and Shelly Brown, CRESPAR, November 2002)...
