- “Achievement” Gaps
You don’t want to miss this! If you want to get deeper insight into the “achievement gap” in education, listen to this brief excerpt of an interview with John B. Diamond discussing his research in “an enviably affluent, diverse, and liberal district” in which “the school is well-funded, its teachers are well-trained, and many of its students are high-achieving.” The abstract of the book, Despite the Best Intentions: How Racial Inequality Thrives in Good Schools, by Amanda E. Lewis and John B. Diamond, provides a preview of what these researchers learned. To learn more about John B. Diamond visit his page at the University of Wisconsin.
