A key disposition of doctoral learners is that they value critical thinking and feedback, possessing an openness to new ideas, ready to challenge assumptions and consider other viewpoints. In this assignment, you will use the feedback from your Chair and Methodologist as garnered in your conference call last week to revise your research prospectus for your Chair to review and score.

According to a 2017 Reuters news article, “America’s mass deportation system is rooted in racism”, by Kelly Lytle Hernandez, an associate professor in African American studies at the university of California, Los Angeles, states that Donald Trump’s Immigration legislation that recently failed, was about control. She states that if the U.S. Supreme court had passed these racist laws, it could “grant unrestrained power to Congress and the president over immigration control which would lead to more than 50 million people being deported or barred from entering the U.S” (Lytle Hernandez, K, 2017). This discriminatory laws and subtle practices that are being enacted in the schools have profound effects on the society at large and our overall social sphere. They should be studied to understand the full underlying cause and further damaging effects of such practises. Methodology To answer the proposed research question, qualitative methods and quantitative methods would be the most effective means to obtain the best answers. Based on the literature and research findings by (Osborne 1997; Steele1992 & Golash-Boza T, 2017) Literature on related topics suggests that qualitative methods and quantitative methods would be most fitting. A “covert” ethnographic, quantitative study would be useful in obtaining honest opinions from the sample variables (African -Americans and their perspective) as well as interviews focus groups and observation of test results over a period of 9 months, equivalent to the school year. This research would involve a random sampling strategy of African-Americans, Caucasians and Hispanics or any other colored demographic as the specific focus is the African-American success/fail rate in standardized testing. This would provide a trustworthy sample as the data would be documented over a course of the 9 consecutive months. The sample would be unbiased in the findings as they would be completely controlled and very specific. This could assist the researchers with insight in regards to trying to understand the participants perspectives on why they (the African-American students) continue to receive failing grades. In the other study, a qualitative study would be used to try and get a>GET ANSWER
