  • Equity and Empathy: Toward Racial and Educational Achievement in the Obama Era

Citing statistics about the opportunity gap that still exists in our nation's schools -- as well as the recent Supreme Court cases that served to halt racial desegregation -- Carter argues that we must continue to push for truly integrated schools, where black and Latino students are provided with the resources, high...

    "Each and every day, educators collect and use data about students, staff, and schools.

  • High school reform and Black male students: Limits and possibilies of policy and practice

    1/1/03 - Jordan, Will J., Cooper, Robert

    An infusion of federal funding and philanthropic support for high schools has sparked an unprecedented number of educational reforms. Still, few initiatives confront the unique conditions facing Black male students. Despite efforts to reform ineffective schools and foster academic achievement for all students, there continues to be a lingering gap between affluent and poor as well as White and Black subgroups.

  • Lasting Consequences of the Summer Learning Gap

    1/1/07 - Alexander, Karl L., Entwisle, Doris R., Olson, Linda Steffel

    Prior research has demonstrated that summer learning rooted in family and community influences widens the achievement gap across social lines, while schooling offsets those family and community influences. In this article, we examine the long-term educational consequences of summer learning differences by family socioeconomic level. Using data from the Baltimore Beginning School Study youth panel, we decompose achievement scores at the start of high school into their developmental...

    1/28/11 - Cate, D., Diefendorf, M., McCullough, K., Peters, M. L., & Whaley, K.

    Overall quality measures of inclusion based on an average rating of a program, classroom or setting may not reflect the actual inclusion experience or appropriateness for individual children. Multiple measures, along with individually relevant information and periodic review, may be the best way of determining the quality of inclusion experiences and opportunities for individual children. Consideration of the actual inclusion experience of individual children, their families and peers, and...

  • Race, inequality and educational accountability: the irony of 'No Child Left Behind'

    1/1/07 - Darling-Hammond, Linda

    The No Child Left Behind Act, the major education initiative of the Bush Administration, was intended to raise educational achievement and close the racial/ethnic achievement gap. Its strategies include focusing schools' attention on raising test scores, mandating better qualified teachers and providing educational choice. Unfortunately, the complex requirements of the law have failed to achieve these goals, and have provoked a number of unintended negative consequences which frequently harm...
