School Effectiveness

What makes a school effective? BCF has supported Baltimore Education Research Consortium's work defining five key factors to measure how a school is facilitating learning among students. We’re sitting down with Tami Smith, a Goucher College education professor and BERC researcher, to discuss those key factors, and how BERC is working to determine if Baltimore’s schools are effective.
