Mathematics Senior Thesis Defense by Katrina Wheelan '21

Investigating the Role of School Homogeneity on Student Outcome Disparities in Chicago Public Elementary Schools by Katrina Wheelan ’21, Mathematics Senior Thesis Defense, Monday, May 10, 3 – 3:45 pm, live talk can be accessed at https://williams.zoom.us/j/97617951870.

Abstract:  Chicago’s long history of redlining led to dramatic racial and income-based residential segregation that persists today.  As a result, many of Chicago’s neighborhood elementary schools exhibit high levels of racial and income homogeneity. In my thesis, I link neighborhood demographics to elementary school outcomes, and I use spatio-temporal methods to investigate the relationship between school homogeneity, neighborhood income inequality, and intra-school disparities in student outcomes.
