    Emphasizing Educators’ Everyday Actions

    1/21/09 - Mica Pollock

    A fundamental debate erupts whenever U.S. educators discuss “achievement gaps.” Do educators’ everyday actions really contribute that much to racial disparities? Or are such disparities caused by parents, by peers, by “society,” by “poverty,” by children themselves? We need to get much better at discussing this issue in education. As I have shown in my research, simplistic debate over who is “to blame” for “achievement gaps” often keeps us from adequately serving...

  • Inside/outside: Teacher research and knowledge

    1/1/93 - Cochran-Smith, M., Lytle, S., Cochran-Smith, M., Lytle, S.

    The central concern of this book is the assumption that pedagogical knowledge is generated "outside-in"; that is, from the university, to be applied at schools. The first half of this book provides a thoughtful and thought-provoking conceptual framework for reading and understanding teacher research, exploring its history, potential, and relationship to university-based research. Cochran-Smith and Lytle argue that teacher research can transform, not simply add to, the present knowledge...

  • Neuroscience Perspectives on Disparities in School Readiness and Cognitive Achievement

    1/1/05 - Noble, Kimberly G., Tottenham, Nim, Casey, B. J.

    This article allows readers to look at racial and ethnic disparities in school readiness from a neuroscience perspective. Although researchers have traditionally measured gaps in school readiness using broad achievement tests, they can now assess readiness in terms of more specific brain-based cognitive functions. Three neurocognitive systems--cognitive control, learning and memory, and reading--are essential for success in school. Thanks to recent advances in brain imaging, it is now...

  • Putting the "affirm" into affirmative action: Preferential selection and academic performance

    1/1/00 - Brown, Ryan P., Charnsangavej, Tonyamas, Keough, Kelli A., Newman, Matthew L., Rentfrow, Peter J.

    Two studies explored the relation between academic performance and preferential selection. In Study 1, female participants were led to believe that they had been selected to be leaders in a team problem-solving task because of their gender, because of their gender and ability, or at random. Results showed that women who believed they had been selected because of their gender performed significantly worse on a subsequent problem-solving test than women who believed they had been selected at...

  • RACIAL PROMOTION THROUGH RACIAL EXCLUSION

    The article presents information on a report which says that racial disparities in academic achievement are unacceptable in the United States. Racial disparities should be eliminated with all possible speed. The language of the report is emphatic and insistent. Eliminating the large educational achievement gaps among the nation's racial and ethnic groups is the most important educational challenge. In order to increase minority participation, race-based affirmative action has often been...
