MOOCs as tools for equity in under-resourced high schools
from Education DIVE
Fewer than half of all U.S. high schools that have high black and Latino student enrollments offer physics courses as part of their curricula. Among schools at the opposite end of the demographic spectrum, two-thirds offer physics. This is according to the latest data from the U.S. Department of Education's Civil Rights Data Collection survey, which also showed that even in schools that offer Advanced Placement classes, black and Latino students are consistently underrepresented in the classes. The same is true among students from low-income families, when compared to their middle class peers.
