Schools in Massachusetts often did not close for moderate amounts of snow -- characterized by 4 to 10 inches of precipitation, according to data studied for a report by the National Bureau of Economic Research. The report makes the case that schools should close on such days, noting increased student absences and make-up work as factors that can affect overall student achievement.
