The Wisconsin-Spencer Lecture Series on Education presents
“They Don’t Know What They Don’t Know”
A Look at Class in an Urban Middle School
Adriane Williams, Dissertator
Educational Policy Studies
In this talk, Adriane Williams will discuss research she has conducted in an urban middle school, where she has observed a lack of “genuineness” in school administrators’ communications with students’ parents who do not have college experience themselves. The primary implication of her research is that the school administrators lack commitment to involving the parents of prospective first-generation college students in education planning in part due a lack of awareness of how critical a role parents play in the process.
