Education reform is an important issue in public policy in the United States today in large part because we haven't ever been able to get it quite right. While most solutions propose increased spending and increased budgets, there is increasing research that focuses on non-fiscal resources and solutions. This study researched already existing literature on this topic and used econometric methods of analysis to examine how educational inputs effect standardized test scores of elementary schools across New York state, including those here in Geneva.
