SociologyRead the article “­­­­ Can a program designed for British diplomats fix Chicago’s schools?” by Hendershothttps://canvas.ku.edu/courses/68685/files/3671735?…
Read the following scenario. This is the scenario you will need to consider as you answer the questions that follow.The Kansas City, Missouri (KCMO) school district has been struggling to meet state academic standards. Recently, some attention has been drawn to the success of the IB program in the low-income, predominately minority schools in urban Chicago as outlined in the Hendershot article. Some families would like to de-track the KCMO schools and wish to implement the IB curriculum for all students in KCMO schools. However, the KCMO school board is resistant to the idea. They’ve called in an educational sociologist to analyze the situation and advise them on their decision. What should the KCMO school district do?Now that you’ve read the Hendershot article, the background information and are familiar with the KCMO scenario, answer all three of the following questions. Be sure that your analysis and your responses are directed to the KCMO school district’s question of whether or not to de-track the KCMO schools and implement the IB curriculum for all students.
Questions (answer all three):1) Analyze the KCMO situation from a historical perspective. Clearly identify, in your analysis, the relevant historical factors that may have contributed to the school district’s struggles and the parents’ calls for the schools to be de-tracked. Dig deeper than a recounting of the information in the Hendershot article. Provide support for any assertions of fact you make from the course readings. (0.5-1 page).2) Analyze the situation from a sociological perspective and clearly discuss how race and class informs this issue. (1-2 pages)3) Put yourself in the role of the educational sociologist hired by the KCMO school district. What would be your advice, based on the sociological perspective you discussed in question 2. What should the district do about parents’ request to de-track the schools and implement the IB curriculum? Provide your reasons for this advice and as always support any assertions of fact using the course readings. (1-2 pages).
