Research Mountain Labors and Produces Mouse Results

"In sum, our findings indicated important school and teacher effects and
that school factors are important predictors of student achievement, net of
the effects of student background."

Duh! Was this in doubt? Well, sad to say, in some quarters of EdLand, it is. But the study begs the question of what the effects are and how they can be controlled.

That, in the time-honored tradition is left to the empty reliance on "future studies.
