Nationally, 15% of first-time community college students were high school dual enrollment (DE) students, which raises concerns about how high school peers might influence college enrollees.

Borman, Geoffrey D.; Pyne, Jaymes; Rozek, Christopher S.; Schmidt, Alex – American Educational Research Journal, 2022
Nationally, educators suspend Black students at greater rates than any other group. This disproportionality is fueled by stereotypes casting Black students as "troublemakers"--a label students too often internalize as part of their identities. Across two independent double-blind randomized field trials involving over 2,000 seventh…

The transition to new assessments aligned to the Common Core State Standards was a significant turning point in the standards' implementation. Concerns about the transition led districts to suspend the use of value-added scores for evaluating teachers, but changes to other measures, such as classroom observations, were rare. Using data from the…

With the pervasiveness of racism, some scholars have interrogated the role of discourse in perpetuating the racial status quo.
