Just in case you were wondering why realtors support school report card sites

Here we have a study that shows just how much house values in crease with a 20% increase in students meeting proficiency - 7%. It seems though that the authors have a funny take on value-added reporting when they study its impact on house values. Just looking at the change in proficiency rates between 4th grade and 9th grade cohorts isn't value added, since you don't know if it is the same kids or any of the qualities of the instrument.

Time to go back to school.
