Keywords: pedagogy, curriculum, sociology of education, inequality, capital, race, socioeconomic status, educational outcomes, income, educational gap



Abstract

Inequality is an issue that carries into different parts of life. There is inequality regarding social capital, economic capital, and inequality regarding race and ethnicity. There is an obvious and alarming educational gap. Inequality in education is an aspect in which the effects are seen all throughout students’ lives. When students’ educational outcomes are impacted negatively, this then carries into their future job or career and ultimately affects their quality of life. In this presentation, we will discuss how inequality regarding class, status, and race can contribute to students’ educational outcomes. Drawing on literature on sociology of education, we will discuss the purpose of the game simulation, our reflections on teaching other students, and how to help students analyze these inequalities and how education is affected by their encounters.
