THE ALABAMA EQUITY DIVIDE (AED) LAB: ENVIRONMENT, INEQUALITY, AND RURAL OUTCOMES

SEDA/Dr. Pendola

The AED Research Lab aims to explore ways in which locale and student outcomes intersect across Alabama, using longitudinal statewide representative data from the Stanford Education Data Archive. 


A growing body of literature has recognized that the inequitable distribution of school resources has contributed to systematic differences in student outcomes. However, ways in which race, socioeconomic status, and spatial geographies intersect have been largely overlooked, even with growing emphasis on how resource inequalities are substantively different between urban, suburban, and rural locales.
