Closing the Achievement Gap

"Dr. Donna Elam, a senior research associate at the University of South Florida and Barth presented the report of the study.

In their findings, Barth stated that there are diverse and deeply rooted reasons for the gap in test scores and graduation rates between white students and African Americans and Latino students, as well as between middle class and low-income students. Elam stressed that a multitude of problems exist in the education system because teachers lack cultural competence."
