The paper reviewed the recent New York effort to reduce class size by investing in school facility and found that the lack of progress was due to: (a) the lack of focus on educational objectives for school facilities is an important issue; (b) The professional values of key participants in the capital planning process, all of which make sense within the world view of each of these professions, have displaced the values of educators at this time; (c) Other reasons for the persistence of student overcrowding exist beyond this confusion over objectives for the schools’ construction plan.

Analysis of state achievement growth as measured by the National Assessment of Educational progress shows that accountability systems introduced during the 1990s had a clear positive impact on student achievement. This single policy instrument did not, however, also lead to any narrowing in the black-white achievement gap (though it did narrow the Hispanic-white achievement gap). Moreover, the black-white gap appears to have been adversely impacted over the decade by increasing minority concentrations in the schools.
