The variability in content coverage is likely to produce differences in student learning outcomes. The authors use this variability to reinforce their view that the management of content coverage, including association time allocation, is among the most important tasks for educational leadership. The authors reviewed 53 districts (within two states) by grade level and then analyzed coherence and consistency within districts and within the individual schools. Their method, instrumentation, results, and conclusions are detailed in this chapter.
