A Closer Look at the Minority Achievement Gap.
D'Amico, Joseph J.
ERS Spectrum, v19 n2 p4-10 Spr 2001
Research shows that the minority/white achievement gap is real and is having devastating effects on youth and society. However, school leaders can influence certain educational causes and correlates (like teacher qualifications and expectations). Programs must be individualized, and narrowing the achievement gap should become a national priority. (Contains 82 references.) (MLH)
