Public Education and the Achievement Gap: A Community Conversation
By the end of high school, African-American and Hispanic students’ reading and mathematics skills are roughly the same as those of white students in 8th grade (National Center for Education Statistics, NAEP Summary Data Tables, 2001).
What is the achievement gap?
Why does it persist?
What can we do about it?
Join students, teachers, policy makers and concerned citizens for an onstage conversation.
Bring your ideas and experiences to the table!
