For the first part, look at this website on NC School Report Cards
(Links to an external site.)

You can pick any county and compare two schools within that county (say comparing two high schools) or you could pick a school from two different counties (say Wake and Warren county). When you click on a county from the map, you can then filter by grade level (I suggest looking at high schools) to find schools. Make sure to pick two schools at the same grade level as it will be more difficult to get accurate comparisons of schools at different grade levels. I would also suggest trying to compare a school that has a lower performance compared (D) to a better performance school (A) to be able to draw more clear differences and think about what are you noticing as far as population and funding, perhaps even geographical location, that might play into these differences.

Once you have chosen your school, start looking at the graphs on the report. What do you notice about the percentages of economically disadvantaged students between your two schools? What about Arts Education? The funding per pupil? Really explore these reports and talk about what stands out to you.

*There is an option to compare school and district reports on the website, so take advantage of that*

What I will be looking for in your response here:

The two schools you chose and in what county/counties
A detailed summary of what you notice on each of the reports
A comparison between the two schools

The second part, think about what you noticed sociologically. How does what you see relate back to things in sociology? Is this related to class? Race? Check out Chapter 12 ( Essentials of Sociology by Giddens, Anthony, et al. ) for more information on education in relation to sociology

What I will be looking for in your response here:

Clear use of sociological terms or phenomenon.
Specific examples from the school data to support your claims

(i.e. we see that in School A they have fewer Arts Programs. This relates back to our discussion on class and networks because of X, Y, and Z.)

Reflect on what you learned.
