Diversity DataLaPordia TerrellWalden UniversityEDUC - 6650 Enhancing Learning for Diverse PopulationsAnnie BoothMy school is an urban school with majority of our students living at the poverty level.
Having this information allows us to have conversations about how we can service our students in a better way. My demographic predictions about my school were pretty accurate in a sense. I predicted that our population consisted of roughly 675 third through fifth grade students in our school building. The actual number of students we have is 667 third through fifth graders. The following was my estimated breakdown of the students in my school. African American……. 97%Hispanic….2%Caucasian…..1%We are also a Title 1 school and I predicted that 98% of our students receive free and reduced lunch. These predictions were made with the information that I have about the students that we work with. I have been at the same school for 13 years and the population has pretty much been the same since I have been teaching there. I used publicschoolsreview.com to actually compose some of my data. I feel like this website was very reliable because it provided information from credible sources and the sources were cited on the website. This website was very helpful because it compiled data from several different sources. The sources that the cite provided came from the Alabama Department of Education and U.S. Department of Education among others. My school isn’t very diverse and thestudent breakdown that the website publicschoolsreview.com gave me showed that I was pretty on target with my predictions. The website states the demographic breakdown as follows:African American….94%Hispanic...5%Caucasian...1%
