The Black-White Achievement Gap: When Progress Stopped( Paul E. Barton and Richard J. Coley)           

07/01/10    The Educational Testing Service

This report explores the persistence of the Black-White achievement gap for students in the U.S. It highlights contributing factors to the fluctuations in the gap and attempts to find reasoning behind the narrowing of it between the 1970’s and the 1980’s. One of the strongest themes in the report is the decline of stable communities in which many poor Black families live. The Coalition views the community school strategy as a vehicle for providing the structure to facilitate these changes.

Health-related problems play a major role in limiting the motivation and ability to learn of urban minority youth, and interventions to address those problems can improve educational as well as health outcomes.
