This research examined how schools and the provision of education within Pennsylvania communities may have been affected by active Marcellus Shale natural gas development. Using data from the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the federal Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), coupled with qualitative focus group data with school leaders from Pennsylvania’s northern tier and southwest counties, this research focused on several topical areas, including changes in student populations and characteristics, student achievement, and school district finances.
