Abstract (Summary)

This document presents the findings from a study of an urban, high poverty, high racial minority elementary school that underwent a loss in funding. The study found out what the effects of the loss of funding had on the school from the point of view of a group of the faculty and staff members. The major findings were: (1) academic performance declined; (2) the majority of the teachers felt that there was less time for instruction and preparation; (3) a reduction in staff and decreased time for some who became a group of shared staff with other schools in the district; (4) technology did not support a learning environment that the staff normally used for instruction and remediation; (5) the school merger changed the school culture.
