Parsing the Achievement Gap II

Abstract

This Policy Information Report follows up on a 2003 report Parsing the Achievement Gap: Baselines for Tracking Progress. The updated report identifies 16 factors related to academic performance ranging from birth weight and hunger to lead poisoning, parental involvement, and teacher quality. The report concludes that while a few of the gaps in achievement have narrowed, overall, there has not been much progress.
