Beating the Odds: Some School Boards Can Do It - Education Next : Education Next

This short but power-packed study by Arnold Shober, associate professor of government at Lawrence University, and Michael Hartney, researcher in political science at the University of Notre Dame, is here to offer hope: done right, school boards can work for kids.
Rather than painting boards and their members with a broad brush, Shober and Hartney spend time defining different types of capacity-possessing accurate knowledge about a district, focusing on student learning, and adopting effective work practices. What is most hopeful, however, is that Shober and Hartney were able to find out if those capacities-or lack of them-made a difference in student achievement.

Analysis by Dr. Patrick Flavin of Baylor University and Michael Hartney of the University of Notre Dame concludes that state education authorities and policymakers tend to be more responsive to falling graduation rates among white students and less so to falling African-American graduation rates.

The authors report that “the persisting achievement gap between White and African American students has distinctively political foundations.� The study, by Michael T. Hartney of the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, and Patrick Flavin of Baylor University in Waco, Texas, was published online ahead of print in the scholarly research journal American Politics Research.

"I certainly wouldn't say that this report portrays school boards as a panacea," said Michael Hartney, a researcher at Notre Dame University and one of the coauthors of the study, which was released earlier this month.
But, on the margins, he said, there is solid evidence that school boards can make a difference. Electing moderates Some of the findings were quite surprising. It matters, for example, when elections are held. Holding elections at the same time as state and national-level elections, the authors found, correlates to standardized student proficiency test scores 2.4 points higher than a comparable district that has off-cycle elections. The likely explanation, said Hartney, is that "off cycle" elections pull in fewer voters, and can often be swung by the intense commitment of a small number of people. This lends itself to ideological extremists on both the right and the left, who then squeeze out moderates in the middle. But it is moderates on school boards who are more likely to focus on student achievement and to have a better understanding of the district's real needs. "When you ask a board member what the biggest priority in the district is," Hartney said, "we found that political moderates were more likely to provide an answer that reflected real conditions on the ground. The researchers are not really sure, Hartney acknowledges, whether they are looking at cause or effect. They know that board members in high performing districts focus on student achievement. The report also found that when board members were professionalized, underwent professional training and in some cases even earned a salary, students performed better. But a community that is already focused on student achievement may be more likely to elect like-minded board members. Hartney acknowledges that a board member's academic focus and the board's professionalization may not cause educational outcomes.
