Socioeconomic and Racial Gaps in Schools: Implications for Health and Employment

Project Summary

For lower SES and racial minority children, school experiences are often characterized by inequalities in which they are disadvantaged relative to higher SES and White children. In many schools, lower SES children and African-American and Hispanic children are more likely to be disciplined, are tracked into lower level courses, and have lower grades than their higher SES and White peers.
