                                    QUALITATIVE DATA




   1. What motivates you do well in school?
          My future, I don’t want to be here forever. I don’t want to become another brick in
           the wall.
          Knowing that if I do well in school I will get into a good college and be successful. I
           also feel better about myself when I work hard and achieve something.
          Nothing right now. Except getting out and going to college.
          I know in order to succeed at the things I want; I need an education and deeper
           understanding of things.
          My friends and knowing I’ll be the first one in my family to graduate from high
           school and to get out of here when I’m seventeen.
          I’m not strongly motivated to do well in school. I am motivated to be able to live
           nice.
          What the state, or whoever, chooses for the school curriculum doesn’t seem worthy
           knowing. Where will we ever use such information ever again to further ourselves in
           the world?
          Doing well in school is the norm here at ARHS. Poor academic performance is
           embarrassing and uncouth.
          I suppose being a minority student makes me want to do well, to represent my
           minority group…




                                                                                                 3
2. What is you biggest challenge to academic success?
      The greatest challenge is lack of support
      My biggest challenge is absence and tardiness as well as commitments at home.
       Unlike many of my peers, I have serious responsibilities outside of school that
       supersede academics.
      Seeing how little people of color occupy my honors classes.
      Forgetting my priorities.
      Affording SAT training and other things; soon I will be faced with affording college.
      My biggest challenge is actually sitting down and doing work without getting
       distracted.
      Teachers. Not every teacher is willing to change their teaching styles.
      No inspiration/motivation.
      There is such a big difference from CP to honors classes, there is not in between. CP
       is too easy but honors classes are too hard sometimes.
      Lack of support and affirmation that I will succeed because of my motivations and
       being reminded I am stunted because of my color
      Thankfully, I haven’t had to deal with many minority-based impediments. But it is
       quite difficult to be the only student representing my minority (ethnic group, religion)
       in practically all my classes. Also, the lack of minority faculty and staff in this school
       sometimes make it difficult to feel like I have a concrete identification in this school,
       and someone to relate to.




3. Why do you believe that the achievement gap between white students and students
   of color exists in our school?


      I think it has a lot to do with where people live and grow up…there is a lot of
       segregation in housing. Family values and the media could be factors as well.
      Colored people are smart but sometimes they face hard obstacles like stuff that white
       people don’t.
      I don’t see that there is one. I don’t like to label or categorize people. We need to
       start looking at the big picture.
      Expectation of teachers; that white students will excel.
      I wasn’t aware there was a gap.
      Racist! I’m outrage by the question. I think the gap is created by there stupid surveys.
       If you want colored students to do better maybe put more good color teachers.


                                                                                                4
   Lack of guidance/support from authority figures.
   Let it be.
   I don’t believe that.
   The achievement gap persists due to the many notions that people of color are
    supposed to fail. It can only be changed through education and understanding.
   I think that white students have higher goals and better educated parents at home to
    help support them (not always, but a good percentage). I also think students of color
    don’t focus on academics as much as other students, which may be because of their
    lives at home. I also feel like a lot of teachers either baby or are too strict to students
    of color.
   First off, I condemn the term ‘people of color’ because it is condescending;
    personally, I hate being referred to as such. But that’s not to say there isn’t an
    achievement gap – because there is. I’d attribute this to just the way things are. Look
    though history and would find that there has always been white privilege and
    superiority – and this is mirrored in schools.

                                         QUALITATIVE DATA

1. What motivates you to do well in school?

      Teachers who make me feel smart
      When I think of my future I think that I need to do well now to have a good future.
      The fact that I want to be successful in life
      Because my friends are in good classes so I want to do good.
      My family encouraging me to do my best in school, getting into a good college, getting good
       grades.
      When someone doubts me.
      I like to be proud of myself, I am competitive and like to do as well as or better than my friends.
      I want to get into a good college. I also want to understand what I am being taught. I want to learn.
      So I don’t become poor or on the streets.
      Females and sports.
      The way that some of my teachers tell me “you can do it!”.
      Myself and watching my single mother work hard as an immigrant, and me wanting the opposite for
       myself.
      Knowing that I have a free education and some other children don’t.
      My parents beat me if I fail.




                                                                                                          8
2. What is your biggest challenge for academic success?

      Bad guidance
      Procrastination
      I don’t have a good home learning environment.
      My friends, because they are distracting
      Bad teachers
      I do not try hard at things I am naturally bad at.
      Organization and motivation
      Poor teaching or other responsibilities
      Stereotypes, not many like me in my field, misconceptions, intimidation.
      My race.
      Distractions and peer pressure.
      MCAS.


3. Why do you believe some students do better than others?

      Motivation
      Stereotypes
      Different people learn differently and have different strengths and weaknesses. The school cannot
       accommodate for everyone’s needs.
      Due to the fact that they take their work seriously and their parents have really high expectations of
       them.
      Because some care more than others. Some people don’t care
      They are afraid to fail.
      They have financial and family support. Maybe their parents push them.
      Innate intellectual ability and study habits
      If everyone was the same we wouldn’t need different levels of classes
      Differences in learning styles
      Some kids have other complicated situations in their lives and can’t concentrate and sometimes
       they give up hope
      Their cultures approach to education
      They are from poor backgrounds whereas people in America are spoiled and don’t know what
       suffering is because they have never suffer much before.
      Because some have more privileges upbringings.
      Some people are better suited to the system of education while others with comparable intelligence
       fail. I think this is because of the way things are taught, and how systems of grading work.
      The support they have at home, history of family education, the people they hang out with.
      Multiple intelligences, different areas of talent.
      Some students have more access to education or live in more supportive environments.
      I think this is because in different cultures and races intelligence and learning is valued as different
       in importance
      They start earlier.
      It’s al about environment. If one’s family and friends do not push him or her to excel, they will not.



                                                                                                             9
   Some people don’t try and do badly, some people do try and do badly. Sometimes brains don’t get
    something for a long time and then all of a sudden it gets it. People are also good at different
    things. Sometimes there is a certain way they would be able to learn, and they haven’t tried it yet.
    But everyone is good at something, and if you find that thing sometimes you do better at everything
    else to. But also effort is sometimes ignored. I know people who work a lot harder than me and get
    worse grades. They should really get the higher grade,
   Because they understand.
