More moves means lower scores

A study found that in CMSD, the more times a student moved schools, the lower the test score.

Test scores were the highest for students that had no school moves or only one summer move over the past 2 years. In addition, frequent moves have been found to increase the probability that a student will drop out of school, up to a 30% increase in some cases.
