Family gentrification, student diversity, and academic achievement : a case study of a parent-organized charter school by Elizabeth Morrison( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this study, I examine the history and effects of a parent-organized charter school in Jersey City, New Jersey in the context of the gentrification of the city. Based on ethnographic, survey, and school- and student-level achievement data, I analyze how the school influences equity and academic achievement. Using the concepts of cultural, economic, and social capital, I provide a comprehensive examination of how public school characteristics can attract or deter families from sending their children to particular schools. At the charter school, students from most subgroup outperform the state-specific subgroup average. On average, students demonstrate a small amount of growth over time; however, there are wide racial and economic achievement gaps between subgroups. The gaps narrow to some extent in math, but during middle school the gap expand in language arts. Interestingly, free-lunch students in more economically balanced cohorts perform better than free-lunch students in less economically balanced cohorts. The study has policy implications for both the state of New Jersey and Jersey City. At the state level, policies currently enable economic segregation in charter schools. Both a lack of busing services and an early application deadline create an advantage for privileged families. Similarly, the policies disadvantage low-income families, who may lack social networks and charter school information. Therefore, this study illustrates the importance of equalizing access to charter schools for all parents. This study also has implications for the Jersey City. Currently, Jersey City is assisting housing developments and local businesses with tax abatements and other incentives. However, the population Jersey City is attempting to attract will only remain in the city if the quality of the schools improves or school choice options increase. The focal school has successfully integrated families who would otherwise send their children to private school or leave the district. Without quality schools, wealthier families will leave Jersey City and its relatively high taxes for more affordable alternatives with better educational opportunities. Thus, the city's already small tax base will become even smaller. More importantly, there will be fewer opportunities for low-income children to interact with middle- and high-income children and experience high-quality schools

Illuminations of the Roman de Troie and French royal dynastic ambition (1260-1340) by Elizabeth Morrison( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1260 and 1340, the Roman de Troie experienced a surge of popularity in France, over 100 years after Benoit de Sainte-Maure first wrote it. The explanation behind the sudden desire for illuminated copies of this text lies in considering the methods used by the Capetian kings in the same period to gather the reins of power and build a unified French nation. Legitimacy through descent became one of the most powerful propagandistic tools of the Capetian kings in the thirteenth century, seen in a pronounced emphasis on a genealogy that stretched in a long line back to the Trojan Diaspora. In this particular climate, the Roman de Troie, telling the story of the Trojan War, emerged as a text that could occupy a place between history and romance, providing an idealized account of the heroic origins of the French people. The key to understanding how the manuscripts of the Roman de Troie functioned at this time in France, however, is found by examining the illuminations, the only evidence of the contemporary reception and interpretation of the text
