Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Michael Marder
This 2010 PhysTEC Conference presentation discusses data, mainly from Texas, and mainly from high-stakes mathematics tests, that illustrate the very different educational outcomes for well-off and low-income students. A range of descriptive statistics that describe student performance within a single year is presented before longitudinal data is examined. Some of the questions addressed include:
  • What are the grades at which low-income students fall behind the fastest?
  • Do ethnic background and low income have independent effects on student outcomes?
  • How do charter schools compare with ordinary public schools?
  • Which students are disappearing from the school system, and when does it happen?
  • Is the pressure of the accountability system having an effect on college readiness?
  • Which are the high-performing schools and forward-looking educational policies that will increase, for example, the numbers of research physicists?
Averages and results for schools throughout Texas are presented.
