Academic Achievement Gap Event

I found this on the Alliance for Education website.

Please join us at a forum on the Achievement Gap
Wednesday, November 29

featuring
Dr. Terry Bergeson

There is a significant and persistent Achievement Gap in Seattle and Washington State. We are going to talk about it.

· What are the root causes of the academic achievement gap between students of color and their White and Asian counterparts?

· How big is the gap?

· Is anything working and what are effective gap-closing strategies?

· Why should we care about an Achievement Gap?

Hear answers to all of these questions as well as your own!
