Coming Sunday: A critical gap
Why, decades after integration and years after a federal law was passed to raise achievement, is there still a persistent gap between African Americans and white students across the state and the nation?
I explore the reasons why the achievement gap persists in a story in the Ideas section of the Sunday newspaper. Some African Americans say families need to stress academics and push their children to succeed.
Do you have a view on what is causing this problem? Maybe you are a teacher who has seen this gap played out in the classrom, maybe you are a parent. What are your thoughts? On Monday I will respond to comments posted here.
