1. Does Attendance in Private Schools Predict Student Outcomes at Age 15? Evidence From a Longitudinal Study

This study examined the extent to which enrollment in private schools between kindergarten and ninth grade was related to students’ academic, social, psychological, and attainment outcomes at age 15. After controlling for sociodemographic characteristics of children and families, the researchers found no evidence to suggest that low-income children or children enrolled in urban schools benefited more from private school enrollment.

2. Open Education Science

Open Education Science is a set of practices designed to increase the transparency of evidentiary reasoning and access to scientific research in a domain characterized by diverse disciplinary traditions and a commitment to impact in policy and practice. The authors argue that each aspect of the scientific cycle—research design, data collection, analysis, and publication—can and should be made more transparent and accessible.

3. Student-Teacher Race Congruence: New Evidence and Insight From Tennessee

Our work aims to substantiate and extend earlier findings on the effects of student-teacher race matching on academic achievement using longitudinal data for students in Grades 3 through 8 in Tennessee.  The results align with prior findings, emphasizing that race-match effects transcend state borders, and support policy efforts to diversify the educator labor force.

4. Advanced Placement: The Dual Challenge of Equal Access and Effectiveness

This literature review summarizes existing research on whether the AP program has achieved its dual goals of equal access and effectiveness. The extant literature suggests that, despite impressive gains in access to AP, significant barriers remain to its becoming a program that ensures equal access for all students and effectively prepares them for college coursework.

5. The Effect of Teacher Coaching on Instruction and Achievement: A Meta-Analysis of the Causal Evidence

The authors reviewed the empirical literature on teacher coaching and conducted meta-analyses to estimate the mean effect of coaching programs on teachers’ instructional practice and students’ academic achievement. Although findings affirm the potential of coaching as a development tool, further analyses illustrate the challenges of taking coaching programs to scale while maintaining effectiveness.

6. The School Discipline Dilemma: A Comprehensive Review of Disparities and Alternative Approaches

This study provides a comprehensive review of the extant literature on the contributors to racial, gender, and income disparities in disciplinary outcomes, and the effectiveness of emerging alternatives to exclusionary disciplinary approaches. Findings indicate that the causes of the disparities are numerous and multifaceted.

7. The Effectiveness of Direct Instruction Curricula: A Meta-Analysis of a Half Century of Research

Quantitative mixed models were used to examine literature published from 1966 through 2016 on the effectiveness of direct instruction on reading, math, language, spelling, and other academic subjects as well as on other outcomes.  All of the estimated effects were positive and all were statistically significant except results from metaregressions involving affective outcomes.

8. The Long-Term Impact of Systemic Student Support in Elementary School: Reducing High School Dropout

This study examines the link between participation in a comprehensive elementary school student support intervention and high school dropout. Students who attended intervention elementary schools in a large, urban, high-poverty district during 2001–2014 were compared to students who did not attend intervention schools. Intervention students had approximately half the odds of dropout.

9. State Prekindergarten Effects on Early Learning at Kindergarten Entry: An Analysis of Eight State Programs

This study estimated the effects of eight state-funded preK programs (Arkansas, California, Michigan, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and West Virginia) on children’s learning using a regression discontinuity design. Differences in effect sizes by domain suggest that preK programs should attend more to enhancing learning beyond simple literacy skills.

10. Long-Term Trends in Private School Enrollments by Family Income

The authors used data from multiple national surveys to describe trends in private elementary school enrollment by family income from 1968 to 2013. Among the findings was that the private school enrollment rate of middle-income families declined substantially over the past five decades while that of high-income families remained quite stable.
