Campaign for Educational Equity, Teachers College, Columbia University
This presentation summarizes two products of the ongoing work the authors are doing for the Campaign for Educational Equity. Part 1 of this presentation is a summary of "A Report Card on Comprehensive Equity: Racial Gaps in the Nation's Youth Outcomes." This report estimates the black-white achievement gaps in each of these aspects of education and youth development, and illustrates the types of data gathering which should be undertaken for ongoing measurement of these gaps. Part 2 of this presentation is a summary of "A Proposal for Expanded Data Gathering: How NAEP Can Monitor Equity on the Full Range of Education and Youth Development Outcomes." This report offers a proposal on redesign of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), for the purpose of collecting data on the full range of youth outcomes to be sought by schools and other institutions of youth development.
