  2. 2. General Demographic Trends<br />As of 2008, the majority of all racial/ethnic groups in large metropolitan areas now reside, for the first time, in the suburbs.<br />Suburbs now house the largest <br />and fastest-growing <br />poor population in the U.S., as <br /> suburbs in the largest metropolitan<br />areas are home to nearly one-third of those <br />below the poverty line.<br />Young white residents are showing a <br />preference for living in larger cities.<br />Family dynamics within suburbs are becoming more varied.<br />~Brookings Institution, 2010<br />image: http://www.julialicht.com/images/motherhood/urban_to_suburban.jpg<br />

  5. 5. ICT Access and Use<br />Easier access to – and more frequent use of – technological resources among suburban educators<br /> Software usage: more higher-order/ creative thinking (e.g. desktop publishing; multimedia projects) among suburban schools, and more drill-and-practice and test administration among urban schools <br /> Least satisfaction with training, tech support, condition of the equipment and repairs among urban teachers (and most satisfaction among suburban)<br /> ~ NCES, April 2010; NCES, May 2010; NEA, 2008<br />image: http://www.technovelgy.com/ct/Science-Fiction-News.asp?NewsNum=1561<br />
  6. 6. National high school graduation rates by percentage, Class of 2005 (EPE, 2009)<br />However, the urban-suburban graduation gap is closing...<br />…in one-third of our largest metropolitan <br /> regions; BUT…<br />…this gap narrowed by just 1.6% <br /> among all metro areas<br />~EPE, 2009<br />
  7. 7. Moving Forward<br />Avoid reverse isolation. <br /> Don’t forget about the communities.<br />Embrace diversity as a resource for promoting scholarship and equity.<br />image: http://www.nfussd.org/NFUSSD/NFUSSDlogo.jpg<br />
