New: 28 Days of Black history curriculum
As part of the Contemporary Perspectives on Access, Equity, and Achievement series from Information Age Publishing, I recently conducted a multi-city investigation into the state of public education across the United States. Let's Stop Calling It an Achievement Gap highlights the systemic racism and inequities in the American K-12 and higher education systems and encourages educators to consider the external factors that impact student achievement. The book compiles actionable strategies and recommendations from 10 cities across the country, with introductions from leaders in education in each city.
