This article presents two reports on achievement gaps in the U.S. A new report from the Schott Foundation for Public Education shows that the majority of U.S. states and districts fail to provide the resources necessary to support the achievement of their black male students. "Yes We Can: The 2010 Schott 50 State Report on Black Males in Public Education" points to the best- and worst-performing states and districts on the basis of their black male students' high school graduation rates. In Romania, providing a group of low-income students with computers didn't close achievement gaps, according to a recent study conducted by Ofer Malamud, an assistant professor of economics at the University of Chicago. In fact, it "widened" the gap between the students and their more privileged peers. This article also discusses how to sort readers without creating groups segregated by race in an ethnically diverse 1st grade classroom.
