Specialist in Education (Ed.S.)
Educators across the United States traditionally view the vast number of existing school districts as extremely inefficient and undesirable. Statistical data indicate that the total number of school districts in a state has no significant correlation with a state's total geographic area or population (6, 10). The absence of a significant correlation is most obvious when studying data relative to Nebraska's total geographic area, population, and number of existing public school districts.
