Borman, Geoffrey D.; Rachuba, Laura T.
Journal of Negro Education, v68 n3 p366-81 Sum 1999
Investigated the distribution of teacher qualifications and professional growth opportunities across elementary schools of varying poverty levels. Teacher survey data indicated that there were no significant differences in teacher qualifications across low-, middle-, and high-poverty schools. Significant differences emerged in professional growth opportunities. Teachers from the highest poverty schools had fewer opportunities than teachers from lower poverty schools. (SM)
