attitudes, beliefs, education, equity, practices
This dissertation is a case study of one district’s efforts to reduce the disparities in
educational outcomes among its ethnic groups as well as the disparities in educational
outcomes between its economically disadvantaged students and its students that are not
economically disadvantaged. The literature reviewed began with the larger historical
context around equity issues in education and then discussed in-school and out-of-school
factors affecting educational outcomes. The methods used included interviews with
teachers and administrators, site visits, and classroom observations. The results
summarized the successes and remaining challenges facing the district as it continues its
desired journey towards more equitable educational outcomes for the students they serve.
