In particular, we have invited speakers from two major focuses of CIC language science research: prosody and language acquisition. This event is funded in part by your Graduate Student Activities Fee and is therefore open to the entire Graduate Student Community.

12. MPRC Seminar: Great Equalizers or Conduits of Inequality? A Counterfactual Analysis of Year-Round and 9-Month Schooling within Neighborhood Contexts

When: Monday, April 28, 2014 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Where: Cole Student Activities Building : 0124B
Event Type(s): Seminar

Speaker: Odis Johnson, Associate Professor, Department of African American Studies, University of Maryland

About the Talk: Persistent racial, SES and residential disparities in test-scores suggest schools fall short in serving as society's great equalizers. Racial inequalities in achievement in particular have been shown in research to grow mostly while children are in school rather than prior to school enrollment or during the summer recess. However, these studies rarely consider the qualities of children's neighborhoods as contributors to educational stratification, or use counterfactual modeling to strengthen causal inferences. In this study, I model neighborhood-based achievement growth using ECLS-K data within a novel counterfactual framework in which children attend year-round or 9-month schools.
