The author of this brief discusses that racial disproportionality in school disciplinary practices has a long history, and still continues today. In the last three decades, racial disproportionality in school suspensions has increased noticeably, especially in high socioeconomic status (SES) schools.

"Dual Language (DL) programs are relatively new in the United States. After the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) in 1994, a large federal effort related to the education of dual language students was launched. It was at this point that the US Department of Education promoted the development of educational programs whose goal was dual language competency for both language minority students speaking a non-English home language as well as for students whose...

An alternative to homework would be integrating learning that will reinforce (but maybe not exactly imitate) what’s being learned at school. By integrating home learning into activities that families already routinely do, family have more opportunities to reinforce school learning than they might achieve through homework.

The 2006-2007 school year was the eighth annual reporting period since disaggregating the performance of students with disabilities on state and district-wide assessments was required by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). It is the fifth reporting period since the enactment of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), and the eleventh in a series of National Center on Educational Outcomes (NCEO) reports documenting state public reporting practices. Historically, the number of...

Alternative schools and programs are specifically designed to address the educational needs of students at risk of school failure in a setting apart from that of the regular public school. They can be administered by the district or an entity other than the district. The study includes information...

The black-white gap in achievement, as measured by performance on standardized tests, has received considerable attention from researchers in the past five years. Claude Steele's stereotype threat and disidentification mechanism is perhaps the most heralded of the new explanations for residual racial differences that persist after adjustments for social background are performed. Analyzing data from the National Education Longitudinal Study, we found qualified support for portions of the...

Technology makes the assessment of student achievement based on ethnicity more precise and faster and can create and store a huge amount of remediation activities. Furthermore, technology can engage students in alternative teaching and learning that is customized to students' individual learning styles and standards. Examples of the use of technology to help close the achievement gap in West Virginia and Louisiana are provided.

"Understanding peer effects is critical to evaluating the impact of de facto public school segregation on the achievement of white and nonwhite students. Using a unique panel data set of North Carolina public elementary school students, I estimate a model of achievement production that incorporates heterogeneous responses by students at different points of the achievement distribution, while also allowing for peer spillovers to vary across races and for the formation of different race-based...

This 2007 brief and tool were developed to guide stakeholders through dialogue on identifying students for learning disabilities. A brief, developed by the IRIS Center, explains what the IQ-Achievement Discrepancy Model is, how it is used in identifying students with learning disabilities, and three main problems with this model. It describes RTI as an alternative method of identifying students with learning disabilities. Six sets of questions for stakeholders, developed by the IDEA...
