Abstract

Many school districts have recently made decisions to consolidate the number of schools within their respective district boundaries. This study examines the impact of school consolidation on student achievement. A sample of schools in the metropolitan Detroit area, an area in which consolidation has occurred, is examined. Three techniques are used to estimate the impacts at the individual school level, and the results are mixed but suggest that there is a negative impact or no impact at all from school consolidation.
