Abstract: Achievement gap severity is not a matter of uneven resource distribution between towns or districts. Rather, schools with comparable demographic profiles generate widely varied results. Inequities correspond to conditions inside schools. This predicament suggests that learning research would benefit by drawing upon sociological frameworks. Individual students are embedded within peer groups, classrooms are constituted by multiple inter-relationships, and school level learning is shaped by complex interactions amongst adults and children. My research has revealed multiple institutional factors strongly associated with student outcomes and those suggest that equity agendas should more intentionally attend to organizational factors.
