Creating the Opportunity to Learn: Moving from Research to Practice to Close the Achievement Gap

Product Description: After years of applying more pressure on schools to raise achievement levels for all students, particularly those who underperform their mainstream peers, the achievement gap today remains virtually unchanged. Two giants in the fields of education, psychology, and equity — A. Wade Boykin and Pedro Noguera — reveal bold truths about the achievement gap, including what is wrong with popular approaches to closing the achievement gap and why some school districts are making more progress than others in building the capacity of high-performance, high-poverty schools.
