Spotlight on Exemplary School Practices: CTAG

Details on the Closing the Achievement Gap (CTAG) for African American Students forum hosted by State Superintendent Tony Thurmond.

The achievement gap begins before a student ever enters a kindergarten classroom, and we must employ new and innovative strategies to significantly improve outcomes for all students. To fight the achievement gap, we must also engage county, district, and school administrators; teachers; families; and other stakeholders as we evaluate how best to approach the achievement gap while simultaneously taking action to eradicate it.
