Abstract

Teachers in school districts all over the country struggle with budget cuts. Resources are often insufficient, particularly in non-affluent schools. Based on the work of Mead on socialization, it was hypothesized that, teachers in poor school districts would perceive budget cuts to be significantly more detrimental to educational outcomes than teachers in affluent schools districts. To test this hypothesis a cross-sectional survey was conducted with 59 teachers from both affluent and non-affluent. From the survey given, the results show no significance between teachers in affluent and non-affluent schools districts and budget cuts.
