Abstract

This study shows that the number of high-poverty schools truly achieving at high levels on standardized tests is much lower than reported in Education Trust and Heritage Foundation studies. Unlike the previous research, this study examines test score gains over time, and only 1.1 percent of high-poverty schools were identified as "high flyers."
