Handbook of Research on Social Inequality and Education
Wisdom, Sherrie, Ed.; Leavitt, Lynda, Ed.; Bice, Cynthia, Ed.
In comparing one public school to another, discussions frequently include talk concerning the socio economics of a school or district, which then leads to talk about the advantages that one socioeconomic setting has over another. Educators tend to agree that low academic achievement frequently associated with a low socioeconomic status is a characteristic difficult to resolve for a population of school children. "The Handbook of Research on Social Inequality and Education" is a critical reference source that provides insights into social influences on school and educational settings.
