Please view the Word document in the link below. It contains population, income, and educational information for Springfield, MA and Longmeadow, MA. The statistics indicate large discrepancies in income, racial/ethnic demographics, graduates rate, and more.
Discuss your findings and impressions. Is there anything surprising? What do you think are the underlying factors that are contributing to such large gaps in educational achievement between the two districts? If you were practicing mental health counseling in schools or in the community in both districts what issues might you be dealing with working with a child or adolescent in Springfield versus Longmeadow? How might your interventions be different?
