Eliminating Black-White Achievement Gap

In Uncategorized on July 15, 2009 at 2:45 am

Measuring progress can be a tricky task, but some improvement is always better than none. Yesterday, the US Department of Education released a report stating that the South has made strides toward eliminating the black-white achievement gap on standardized tests. But not all southern states performed as well as hoped. We are having a generation of students growing up poorer and less educated than their parents. Thus, this is why some progress is better than none. In order to move our country out of recession and to continue to advance in the 21st century, it will take ingenuity, creativity, and a much needed skilled and educated workforce to do so.
