1. Unequal Student Attainments: Class, Gender, Race (Davies & Guppy)

1.1. Sociological

1.1.1. Class Richer youth have a higher attainment than poorer youth Dr. Kachur (in class) The education, income, and occupation all are a strong predictor of the child's school success.

1.1.2. Gender Today, there are more women enrolled in full-time undergraduate university than men. There is a small flow of men moving into past female fields like nursing. A small number of women are in fields like engineering and computer science Women started going into the technical fields, but still are in the more nurturing part of them like family law and paediatrics.

1.1.3. Racial and Ethnic Canada is a very diverse country, it is a mosaic. This means that Canadian schools are very diverse There is much variation in attainment amount all ethnic groups, minorities, and immigrants. There is very little trace of British domination like it was stated in The Vertical Mosaic Attainment does not fall into just two groups like what was stated in the Abella image

1.1.4. Causes of inequalities

1.1.5. Social Mechanisms of Educational Inequality Primary Mechanisms Sources of Ablitly Family-Based Learning Opportunites Stress Contexts of Schools and Neighbourhoods Secondary Mechanisms Orientations to School and Cultural Mismatches Gender

1.2. Historical

1.2.1. Class Higher education was largely for a small amount of middle and upper class children.

1.2.2. Gender More nurturing fields didn't have the need to go to university. When these fields moved these fields into Universities, more women started going. It was thought that males were better suited for more technical fields like math and science and women were better suited for more nurturing fields like teaching and nursing.

1.2.3. Racial and Ethnic John Porter: The Vertical Mosaic Abella Image

1.2.4. Causes of Inequalites

1.2.5. Sources of Ablilites First intelligence tests were cultural based These intelligence tests led many countries (including Canada) to sterilize people who were deemed unintelligent and unfit in order to be certain their genes wouldn't be passed along. Eugenics (in class)

1.3. Philosophical

1.3.1. Racial and Ethnic Functional Perspective Schools need to be 'colour-blind'. Reward everyone equally not putting into account skin colour, linguistics, or ancestry. Marxist Model of Reproduction Destinations are pre-orderd form birth, because of race. No mobility for disadvantaged racial or ethnic groups. Limited Compensation Model Schools can partly counteract some inequalities but will still be constrained what they do because of ethnicity. Vertical Mosaic Ethnic groups were arrayed on hierarchy of power and privilege Abella Image People were either white or a visible minority

1.3.2. Sources of Ability Nature Vs. Nurture Nature: Genes and hereditary play a key role in our intelligence and abilities. We inherit this from our parents. Nurture: Family setting, and environment, and the way we were raised play a big role in our mental abilities. Instead of looking at nature and nurture as being competing and it is either one or the other, we need to look at them as two entities that work together and both have influence on a person's mental capabilities. Secondary Mechanisms Goldthrope Pygmalion Classrooms Bourdieu

2. Public Education, Globalization, and Democracy: Whither Alberta? (Kachur & Harrison)

3.3.3. The Hidden Cirriculum Students do not only need to learn what is on the curriculum, but also the "hidden" rules and expectations that affect their dispositions, identities, and personalities. Not only the acquisition of knowledge but also the students development of identity. Teaching of norms, values, and dispositions

3.3.4. Peer Group and Popular Culture Students are also influenced by their peer groups. Especially during adolescence Peers have a significant effect on student's attitudes, beliefs, and behaviour.

It is culture and history that divide us, not genetics.

4.2.3. Racist and sexist materials have been removed by former curriculum in Canada.

4.2.4. Teachers can use their power to reinforce social attributes through their own prejudices to students. Teachers need to be aware of this power, and teach the curriculum critically. Fair is not always equal (in class)
