Comparative Analysis of Literature and Narratives Regarding Teaching Practices in Low SES School Districts
Caterina Azzarello, and Cassendra Bergstrom
The purpose of this research is to shed light on the educational disparities that exist within the US regarding socioeconomic status (SES). An in-depth interview was performed with a teacher who teaches in a majority high SES school setting and compared with an interview with a teacher who teaches in a majority low SES school setting. Combining literature and narratives, I provide an overview of the pertinent issues related to SES and schools and urge continued research on this topic. Results found three distinct areas of difference: availability of resources, emotional and behavioural health, and COVID-19 response. Educational experiences should not have to vary based on socioeconomic status, and as we strive for equitable education, we ought to continue research such as this.
