Below, we start Week 2: Below, our month-long report, “Our month of the gaps,” continues.
This week, we’ll examine the size of the achievement gaps which help define the challenges facing our public schools.
In recent weeks, some journalists and professors have tried to avoid discussing these gaps, which are often large. This strikes us as an unhelpful approach—but then, what else is new?
Next week, we’ll discuss the challenges these gaps create within our public schools. This week, we’ll try to define the size of these gaps, which our loftiest elites have been fudging.
