An Analysis of Teacher Distribution across Districts and Schools in the Detroit Metropolitan Area
Krispien, Christina Susanne
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Wayne State University
The demand that today's schools shall produce better educational outcomes of their pupils is stronger than ever before, especially in front of the background of our globalized, competitive world. Past and current research has supported the hypothesis that the teacher is the most important ingredient in the educational process. As the Detroit Metropolitan area, consisting of the three counties of Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne, provides a diversified picture of academic achievement and community background and a number of charter schools (public school academies), research regarding the distribution of teachers with certain desirable attributes across a student population distinguished by achievement, socioeconomic background, and community variables, was conducted. The findings are not surprising, as the multiple statistic evaluations indicated an uneven distribution of more qualified teachers, favoring pupils in more affluent community settings and higher achieving pupils.
