Bradley, Frederick; Feldman, Allan – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2021
There is an ever-growing body of science education research considering factors associated with teaching and learning in urban, suburban, and rural learning environments. However, there also appears to be a tendency to employ these contexts in euphemistic descriptions, when comparing of subsets of our society here in the USA. With this in mind, we…

The purpose of this study was to consider how living in an area that qualifies for a rural health grant interacts with a child's hearing status to affect early language and literacy development.

Diamond, John B.; Posey-Maddox, Linn; Velázquez, María D. – Educational Researcher, 2021
Most students in the United States attend suburban schools. However, most education research focuses on urban school districts. This may be in part because many of the core issues that currently drive education research--issues of race and class inequities, social mobility, immigration, English learning--are believed to be "urban"…

Cristofaro, Lorie H. – ProQuest LLC, 2022
There continues to be a discrepancy between women, who comprise 77% of the public school institution, yet make up only 31% of the superintendency and only 34% of high school principalships. This study sought to examine those very personalized, professional, and intimate connections of women who serve as a high school principal or superintendent in…

Tebaldi, Catherine – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2020
In this "reflection on the field," I use critical auto-ethnography to reflect on the process of bringing urban French vernacular to New England suburbs. I analyze teaching vernacular language as linguistic gentrification, using other people's words for the construction and continual performance of cosmopolitan whiteness. As I reflect on…

Suburban school districts in the United States (U.S.) have experienced major demographic shifts in recent decades and vary substantially in their student populations.

Bradley, Frederick; Feldman, Allan; Bauman, Stephanie; Areas, Javier – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2017
There is extensive use of the terms urban, suburban, and rural as descriptors in science education literature, however these terms are often used undefined. This has implications for science education policy and funding, teacher education and placement, as well as pedagogical and curricular aims. This paper presents the findings of a review of the…

Watts, Tansy – Global Education Review, 2022
A contemporary concern about children's loss of contact with the natural world accompanies an ongoing urbanization and their reduced independent mobility. Children are becoming increasingly reliant on adults in accessing outdoor play and this is giving rise to more such experiences being shared. This research has explored the contemporary…

Gower, Amy L.; Valdez, Cheryl Ann B.; Watson, Ryan J.; Eisenberg, Marla E.; Mehus, Christopher J.; Saewyc, Elizabeth M.; Corliss, Heather L.; Sullivan, Richard; Porta, Carolyn M. – Journal of School Nursing, 2021
Research on enacted stigma, or stigma- and bias-based victimization, including bullying and harassment, among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) youth often focuses on one context (e.g., school) or one form (e.g., bullying or microaggressions), which limits our understanding of these experiences. We conducted qualitative…

Lewis-McCoy, R. L'Heureux – Urban Education, 2018
This article explores the range of experiences and meanings of Black life in suburban space. Drawing from educational, historical, and sociological literatures, I argue that an underconsideration of suburban space has left many portraits of educational inequality incomplete. The article outlines the emergence of American suburbs and the formation…
