Did community groups have an impact?

From lists supplied by the School Board and the funded organizations, Catalyst identified 191 schools that received help from one or more CBOs. The number of parent candidates at those schools averaged 8.9, compared to an average of 7.9 for non-targeted schools, according to the Urban League analysis. However, that one-candidate difference shrank to insignificance when schools’ enrollments and attendance rates were taken into account.
