Description
6. EDUCATIONAL INEQUALITIES 11/14/2012 What are the consequences of funding disparities? Poor students and schools serving them Having fewer computers Underpaid teachers More likely to have unqualified teachers More likely to attend schools that are physically in need of repair Higher teacher turn­over rates Fewer advanced, college­prep classes Larger class sizes Data: Whites are most segregated group in schools, then latinos, blacks and native americans Percent poor in schools attended by average student by race and year Blacks and latinos most then native americans Asians least whites. Blacks and latinos highest chance of attending a poor school Poorest schools are in cities, richest schools are in suburbs. The problem is not having segregated schools, the problem starts when the segregation causes  concentrated areas of wealth and poverty. When people are denied having access to these resources  because of the segregation. The goal is integration which brings equal education.  Funding isn’t the most important when it is not being distributed correctly.  TAKE AWAY POINTS Racial wealth gap, residential segregation, and educational inequalities are all related. Housing segregation directly impacts educational segregation. Because of the correlation between race  and class inequality, high minority schools are often high poverty schools. As long as youth have vastly unequal educational opportunities, education will continue to contribute to  inequality rather than cure it.  NOV 19 Affirmative  action
