Who Gets the Better Educators in Afterschool? An Analysis of Teaching and Learning Interactions and Student Economic Status
St. Clair, Lisa; Stone, Terry
School Community Journal, v26 n2 p71-81 2016
The purpose of this study was to identify whether the quality of afterschool educators varies across economic groups of students. This article describes a statewide study of the relationship of ratings on CLASS--a validated measure for teaching and learning interactions--and student economic status. In essence, what is the distribution of high-quality afterschool educators among an afterschool student population in Nebraska comprised of 3,791 elementary students? An analysis of variance showed that elementary students who were eligible for free meals experienced out of school time instruction from staff members who were rated of significantly lower quality in Emotional Support (ES) and Instructional Support (IS) on the CLASS.
