How districts allocate educational resources in Rhode Island: The relationship between spending and student achievement

Timothy P Ryan, University of Rhode Island

Abstract

This study examined whether spending categories are associated with academic performance. Model 1 showed that spending for direct classroom instruction was a significant predictor of student achievement. Poverty was also identified as significantly negatively associated with student performance. All other allocations were either negatively associated or not associated with student performance.^
