Wood, Allemand, Anderson, and Cheslock present a brief overview and analysis of the article, Relationship between types of school district expenditures and student performance, originally published in Applied Economics Letters. The authors present a summary of the key components of the article including the introduction, method and results of the study. They offer an additional analysis of implications for future practice, including a discussion of legislation and the conflicting evidence that school counseling and support services benefit students in academic and social competencies, as well as evidence that the cost seems to outweigh the benefits.
