white people live in urban areas as well ...
that's a tough question - nice post

I’m going to argue that urban and suburban have a denotative meaning. We get that. But urban has a connotative meaning in education. In fashion. In literature. In music. We can’t forget that. When I say I read urban fiction I’m not saying I read books about NYC. When I go to a fashion show and it’s urban fashion it’s not just fashion people in a city wear. And when I say I teach at an urban school it’s not just that I teach in nyc, it’s who I teach in nyc.

From a Social studies prospective we teach the meaning of the word not the characteristics or stereotypes people put on them.
ex: urban: city, many people, high rise buildings, subway, bridges, traffic, etc.

rural: lower population, farmland, fields, forests

Hello, I have about a year of experience working for a company doing in-house marketing and communication. My degree is in Public Relations. The company is very established and is doing a bit of a rebrand at the moment, and I’m part of the small team working on website, social media, and employee relations,with my hands in most of it doing the work. I think I’m paid relatively well but I was wondering what salaries for this type of work and experience look like in the Central New York area? TIA!
