Education Equity Comparative Analysis

(View Complete Item Description)

Providing quality education and closing the achievement gap in education are high-priority goals both nationally and internationally. This project will allow you to identify and analyze the differences in school systems and conduct a comparative analysis within two school districts. You may choose local, state, national or international comparisons. The first part of the project will include a proposal component where you outline districts you wish you compare, areas you wish to evaluate and resources you will use to support your research and comparative analysis. The second part/assignment of the project includes a deep dive and investigation in specific domains you wish to research. The sources in your investigation should include visits, interviews and other forms of true “connections” within the communities you are researching. The last assignment in this project includes developing a permanent product that facilitates awareness to others about your findings in the comparative analysis. The awareness component will address specific issues in quality education, achievement gaps and possible solutions to ensuring more inclusive and equitable educational practices for all.
