Falling out of the lead, a new report

Continued proof that there is more work to be done when it comes to serving disadvantaged students has been brought to my attention in a new report, Falling out of the Lead. From The Education Trust, this report examined the paths of high-achievers and found that depending on student backgrounds the achievement gap widens during high school. Many black and Latino students as well as students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds who enter high school as top academic performers ultimately graduate with lower grades, AP pass rates and SAT/ACT scores when compared to their more advantaged peers.
