The study found the following conclusions: The building value per pupil enrolled in the white schools was over three times as much as the building value per pupil enrolled in the colored schools. Nearly twice as much was spent to transport a white child to school as was spent to transport a colored child to school.

The value of libraries, per pupil enrolled, was about five times as much in the white schools as in the colored schools, along with several more.
