Closing the Achievement Gap for African American Students
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.
