In this article I contend that elementary school teachers need to work more closely with school counselors to enhance student learning and academic performance and to narrow the achievement gap among student groups. Research showing the influence that counselors can exert on the educational process is summarized. Using the American School Counselor Association's organization framework for structuring counseling and guidance programs, I also illustrate where the educative roles of teachers...

Given the increasing diversity of the population of students in classrooms in the US and around the world, the authors believe that the task of addressing the literacy achievement gap will become even more urgent in the new millennium.The challenges posed by the gap are considered in terms of 3 key groups of participants in the process of...

This project is ongoing and is intended to inform developers and consumers of assessments for special student populations (ELLs and SWDs). The evaluation focuses on the technical adequacy of evidence related to assessments used to meet relevant Title I and Title III requirements under NCLB. In addition to the report, which includes a...

Evaluation is a process that helps parents and schools determine whether a child has a disability. Under IDEA a “child with a disability” is one who qualifies for special education and related services. A child cannot receive special education without an evaluation.

While the educational difficulties of poor black students are well documented and have been discussed extensively, the academic performance of well-off African American children has received much less attention. Even with economic and educational resources in the home, well-off African American youth are not achieving at the levels of their white peers. Why is this? A review of relevant literature identifies a set of social processes that pose formidable barriers to the academic and personal...

"The report documents the results of a search of state education agency web sites in the nine Northeast and Islands Region jurisdictions for publicly available information related to RTI (response to intervention). It finds that seven jurisdictions have developed state documents on RTI that address core features of RTI identified by the National Research Center on Learning Disabilities: high quality classroom instruction, research-based instruction, classroom performance, universal...

The guide is designed to be a quick reference for students services teams in order to prevent/and or reduce the disproportionate representation of culturally and linguistically diverse students in special education. This quick reference effectively addresses the processes under which culturally responsive student services team operate. The guide should be used by student services teams as they engage in problem solving techniques to meet the academic and /or behavioral needs of students in...

This article investigates two sources of the difference in educational attainment between Hispanics and non-Hispanics: family background and nativity. Hispanics have fewer of the family background characteristics that lead to higher educational attainment. In addition, Hispanics are much more likely to be foreign born, a characteristic related to lower educational attainment. Authors' study examines the degree to which these differences in family background and nativity explain differences...

"This new report released by The Civil Rights Project at UCLA finds that for the first time in three decades, the South is in danger of losing its leadership as the nation's most integrated schools. The report examines the effects of the dual processes of racial transformation and resegregation on the educational opportunity of students, as well as the relationship between race and poverty and its implications in light of the recent Supreme Court decisions. The report concludes with...

The purpose of this manual is to offer states a tool to assist in the development or enhancement of guidelines for access assistants.

It has long been offered as an explanation for the achievement gap between White and African American students, that African American youth would do better if they adopted a Eurocentric cultural values system. Unfortunately, this theory, along with a great amount of the established literature on minority youth identity development, depends on a deficit-oriented perspective to explain the discrepancy between African American and White students. This is problematic because the perspective...

In this article we discuss how social or group identities affect achievement. We also present a model of identity engagement that describes how a salient social identity can trigger psychological threat and belonging concerns and how these can produce persistent performance decrements, which through feedback loops can increase over time. The character of such processes may be revealed only over time because they are recursive in nature and interact with other factors in chronically...

The Berkeley, California school district has successfully resisted legal restraints to end desegregation efforts and, in the process, provided a possible model for many other districts across the country which want to keep the benefits of integrated schools but must face the limits on voluntary integration plans imposed by the U.S. Supreme Court two years ago.
