Dispelling the Myth Revisited: Preliminary Findings from a Nationwide Analysis of "High-Flying" Schools

Abstract

This report is part of an ongoing project done by The Education Trust and it focuses on what the actual number of high-poverty and high-minority schools with high student performance is nationwide. The authors suggest that identifying and then learning from these "high-flying" schools will help close the achievement gaps that exist between poor and minority children and other students in this country.
