A comprehensive regression and correlation analysis was performed using two samples of Ohio school districts. The purpose was to describe measurable socio/economic factors associated with varying levels of educational effort and to pinpoint policy implications for state or local decision makers. Evidence exists that larger districts are associated with lower cost per pupil and that wealth, measured in different ways, is associated with expenditure per pupil. State programs do somewhat equalize educational efforts, but they are far from achieving equality.
