Beating the Odds: A Study of Delaware Schools
Buttram, Joan L.
Delaware Education Research & Development Center
This study was designed to identify K-12 schools in Delaware that are beating the odds, that is, outperforming expectations given the composition of their student body, and to learn what actions they are taking to achieve their success. This first stage documents the identification process and the schools that were identified. It relied on cluster analyses of Delaware public and charter schools’ percentages of white students and students from low-income families.
