How to close the achievement gap: "One of the great challenges for educators is the widening achievement gap between students of different races and different economic backgrounds. The directors of two charter schools join Midmorning to discuss their efforts to close that gap, and create a culture of achievement among minority and low-income students."
Yes Please! Wish I wasn't teaching so I could listen to it this morning. I'll be listening to this tonight afterschool. It'll be interesting to hear what these charter schools are doing and how we can apply their changes in the public school setting.
