Dr. Ha Yeon Kim receives $20,000 grant from AERA

Dr. Ha Yeon Kim was awarded a grant in the amount of $20,000 from the American Educational Research Association. The project, titled "Estimating Causal Impacts of Racially Segregated Classrooms on 8th Grade Math, Science, and Reading Outcomes: Selection, Contrast, and Consequences," will examine the role of racial segregation in academic self-concept and achievement in middle school classrooms. By considering the racial composition of students' home neighborhoods as well as factors that influence placement into comparatively segregated classrooms, this project is designed to identify opportunities for and mechanisms to reduce the adverse impact of racial segregation in schools.
