Description/Abstract

The proposed paper examines the relationship between student socioeconomic status (SES) and opportunity to learn (OTL), as indicated by teacher quality and instructional time, using a recent large dataset available, the 2013 Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) Teacher Questionnaire. The guiding research of the comparative quantitative study is, “To what extent does student opportunity to learn differ between classes with different proportions of disadvantaged students, and how does that relationship vary by country?” Researchers consider these findings in light of various leadership theories to propose implications for school leaders.
