VIEWS: 68 PAGES: 10

This study examines the results of consolidation on the Hamilton County Department of Education, an urban school district located in Tennessee. The purpose of the study was to analyze the longitudinal effects by comparing and contrasting the district's pre-consolidation data from 1997-98 to its post-consolidation figures for 2006-07. More specifically, the authors examined express district and student characteristics, academic performance outcomes, and expenditures. The study found that the student enrollment and average daily attendance declined, that the ethnicity of the student population changed, that the students' academic performance increased negligibly, and that the district's expenditures increased substantially.
