Urban School Stigma - article
This article shows advantages of students in suburban and more affluent schools compared to students in urban, largely poverty schools. This is one statement from the article: "discrepancies in test scores indicate more about families and neighborhoods than they do about the work being done in schools. One notable study, for instance, found that the influence of family and neighborhood factors accounts for roughly 60 percent of the variance in student test scores; teachers, by contrast, account for only about 10 percent." Add this to your research when looking to understand differences in support available to kids in high poverty urban schools and those in more affluent areas.
