Does school spending per pupil relate to the school graduation rate?

Using the uploaded Doctoral Study Template, please complete the entire Introduction to the Problem and Methodology sections for this dissertation topic. The main question is: Does school spending per pupil relate to the school graduation rate? The first sub-research question is: Do school spending per pupil relates to the school graduation rate with similar demographics concerning poverty? The second sub-research question is: Do school spending per pupil relates to the graduation rate with similar demographics concerning economic status? I will need two data sets due to the usage of two sub-research questions. Please convey within the methodology section the location of the schools that will be used within the study are public urban high schools located within Upstate South Carolina. Please convey that I will use a sample size of 100 public South Carolinian high schools located in Upstate South Carolina. The goal is to select schools that have similar school sizes and social income. The sample size was calculated utilizing the G*Power free software that runs data analysis for quantitative research studies. The software calculated that a minimum of 84 schools should be used. However, due to the possibility of outliers and other unknown factors, I have selected to use a sample size of 100 to ensure ample data/sample size. A sample size of 100 SC urban high schools is approximately 1/3 of the 329 public high schools located in the entire state of South Carolina. Please highlight within the methodology section the identification of the variables within the study and describe in detail how I intend to measure the variables using secondary online data. In the Conceptual Framework section, please include graphs taken from available websites concerning Upstate SC high school websites on school funding with poverty and economic status on graphs as independent variables and graduation rates on the right of the graph as a dependent variable. Please use credible and current resources published in the last few years so that you can find information about financial funding of Upstate SC public urban high schools as well as their graduation rates, poverty, and economic status. Here are some of the websites I have found thus far with related information. https://www.americashealthrankings.org/explore/annual/measure/Graduation/state/SC https://rfa.sc.gov/sites/default/files/2020-11/Rev Per Pupil by District FINAL FY 21.pdf https://rfa.sc.gov/data-research/education/education-finance-projections https://wallethub.com/edu/e/most-least-equitable-school-districts-in-south-carolina/77128 https://screportcards.ed.sc.gov/overview/academics/graduation-rate/?q=eT0yMDE5JnQ9SCZzaWQ9MDIwMTAwMg
