Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Education inequity within the United States

This project involves synthesizing the existing body of research on educational inequality within the United States, and using the information gleaned from existing academic literature to come up with a research topic of your own. It's generally easiest to come up with an idea that is focused on a specific region (i.e. the American South), age group (i.e. elementary school education), or other relevant category, rather than looking at the United States as a whole.
