What the research collected in this study aims to discover is how the socioeconomic status of a child and/or their family affects their cognitive development, specifically their intelligence quotient. It will also address the theory that development takes both nature and nurture, rather than one or the other, to cultivate on a progressive path. Socioeconomic status, commonly shortened to the acronym SES, includes three different variables that correlate with one

As an educator you need to be fully aware of these differences among your students, so you can provide a classroom where the students are comfortable interacting with different people, ideas and backgrounds within the physical school environment.

My group has suggested for a topic examining community violence and how it affects school aged children. This topic will attempt to show a correlation how violence that takes place in urban environments can have an adverse effect on children and their learning patterns causing a decline in education.
