Textbooks and Learning Materials
|Above copied from the Mail & Guardian|
95% of students in SAT have textbooks compared to 58% in CEB schools. To help visualize how much 0.2 of a standard deviation is, here is a paragraph from Stanford's Eric A. Hanushek:
Amazingly, it is equivalent to the effects of having a good teacher as opposed to having an instructor who is simply average. The annual cost per pupil in a Honduras' CEB school to support teachers' wages is about $300. The annual additional cost per pupil for the required textbooks in an SAT school is about $30, only 10 percent of the cost of a teacher.
