For this special project, the Education Week Research Center surveyed a nationally representative sample of more than 1,300 teachers. We wanted to understand how they use language to talk about disparities in student outcomes in terms of race and income level—as well as how those language choices correlate with their understanding of what’s at the heart of those disparities.
