Abstract/Description

This study seeks to understand how middle school students are self-empowered in a racially and economically diverse school setting and how educators can best serve their unique needs. Currently, there is a lack of existing research that studies such severe economic inequality and racial diversity of students in one school site Specifically, this study seeks to learn from students through interviews what tools and approaches positively and consistently impact their empowerment in a racially and economically segregated school site.
