Essay 2: Education and Socio-economic Status: Due Date: Thursday, August 6, 2015 10:59 PM CST: Points: 100

You will be using the school library, to complete your research for this essay. We have been exploring in this module how race, ethnicity, and culture can influence an individual’s socio-economic status. Now is your chance to dig into this complex issue in greater detail. Your essay topic should have been carefully researched, and now, in your writing of the essay, you will develop conclusions based on reliable data. In Essay 2, you are exploring the intersection of education and socio-economic status for different minority groups in the U.S.

Please follow these guidelines:
Start with the U.S. Census data and go as far back as you can to research your group. You will want to track change over time in: number of people identified as part of this group, income range, and education reported. Compare and contrast to majority whites (some groups have been followed for years or decades, but others have not, so you will need to do some digging).

Address these questions: 1. How has education helped your group to improve over time, or has it? (research beyond the Census stats needed here)

2. Are the promises made about education actually being fulfilled? Why or why not? (real sociology-type question)

3. What other factors may be at play here?

4. Discuss the facts you have located and the interplay of these to build to a logical and informed conclusion. Have you found any solutions in your research for the issue? If so, include them in your discussion/conclusion, along with your own ideas about how education can and cannot help people improve their socio-economic status.

Additional Requirements and Resources:
5. A minimum of four resources from academic publications found in your school library.

6. 750 – 1250 words of writing. This does not include the title page or reference page. Please organize your paper based upon the approved outline and your faculty feedback.

7. Grammatically correct sentences.

8. Use APA citation guidelines.
