Modeling Teacher-Student Race Match in California Public Schools by Julia Tucher '21

Modeling Teacher-Student Race Match in California Public Schools by Julia Tucher ’21, Mathematics Senior Thesis Defense, Wednesday, May 5, 1:45 – 2:15 pm, live talk can be accessed at https://williams.zoom.us/j/97617951870.

Abstract:  An important feature of classroom learning, teacher-student race match describes the ways in which students benefit from sharing a racial-ethnic background with their teachers.  Understanding racial match and mismatch can help identify inequities in elementary and secondary schools.  In this talk, I’ll share a new data set for same-race teacher-student exposure in California public schools; define a metric to measure race match with high granularity; and explore patterns across racial-ethnic groups, school types, and student enrollment.
