Compose a short brief that analyzes socioeconomic realities and diverse family structures by providing examples from your local context. For example, you might consider the teachers compared to the students they teach. You can find information in your local context by looking at demographic statistics in your local area, school districts’ websites, and local media (such as news articles on current events). Be sure to link theoretical ideas from your review of the literature on this topic to practical solutions/strategies for your community and/or school.
Consider the topic of family structures and socioeconomic issues today. Provide research and evidence from the readings and other references. Cite statistics on poverty, family structures, and the achievement gap to support your analysis of your local community/school. If citing the name of a school district, school, and/or any individuals (students, teachers, administrators, etc.), please use alternative names to protect the individuals’ identities.
Length: 2-3 pages, not including title and reference pages
References: Include a minimum of 3 scholarly resources.
