The purpose of the study is to investigate teacher perceptions of students enrolled in low-level classes. The study will investigate how high school core-subject instructors of general education (low-level) track courses perceive academic tracking and the associated achievement gap; the expectations of high school core-subject instructors who teach general education (low-level) track courses regarding general education students; and how high school core-subject instructors who teach general education (low-level) track courses perceive their ability to teach general education students. Interview questions and classroom observations will be utilized to gather qualitative data in this single method case study. In addition, teacher lessons will be used to triangulate the interview and observation data.
