UTSA researcher Sharon Nichols assesses impact of current educational policy
The diversity of American classrooms has expanded over the last 10 years but educational policy hasn’t kept pace, says Sharon L. Nichols, associate professor of educational psychology at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA).
“The average American classroom has become increasingly diverse,” Nichols said. “The social contexts in which our students and youth learn has changed, and it’s up to the adults who drive educational policies such as resource allocation, testing procedures, and other academic opportunities, to understand how their policy actually affects students.”
