Closing the Achievement Gap: Lessons Learned and Challenges Ahead.
Green, R. Stephen
Teaching and Change, v8 n2 p215-24 Win 2001
Chronic disparities exist between the performance of minority and nonminority students on high-stakes standardized tests. Similar disparities exist on college admission. The College Board's Equity 2000 Project, implemented in 1990, gathered information on closing the gaps. Seven lessons learned from Equity 2000 emphasize the importance of such issues as parent participation, mathematics skills development, professional development, and community partnerships. (SM)
