Abstract

This article uses descriptive statistics and regression modeling to test effects of ethnicity and socioeconomic status on third-graders. Results implicate ethnicity and socioeconomic status as a significant influence on third-graders' mathematics scores. Findings suggest that strong social forces sustain the Black-White mathematics achievement gap even when affluent school resources are available. Results also suggest a need for the observed affluent districts and Black families in them to: (a) examine and improve their roles in closing Black-White achievement gaps in third-grade mathematics and (b) use available resources to implement specific interventions and pedagogy at school and home that address weaknesses and build upon strengths of students' ethnicity and socioeconomic status.
