Study backs community schools
from Tulsa World
Curt Adams, an assistant professor in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies at the University of Oklahoma, found that students in six fully developed community schools in the Tulsa and Union school districts "significantly outperformed" students from low socioeconomic households who attend schools with more affluent student enrollments overall. Community schools provide a web of support and resources to improve the academic, emotional, physical and social development of children. "This shows that community schools are indeed having an effect on the achievement gap attributable to poverty," said Adams.
