about

The writing of Closing the Achievement Gap is in response to the growing concern for the improvement of quality education, especially mathematics and science, provided for all students. This book is designed to improve the quality of mathematics and science teaching and learning as well as to increase the access of all students to high-quality instruction in these and other fields. A changing world demands changing skills. Closing the achievement gap between low-and high-achieving students is an important goal of public education. There is no excuse for the perpetual achievement gaps that persist for poor and minority students in schools today. Regardless of race, ethnicity, and economic background all students can succeed at high levels. Several countries have confronted previous inequities and have shown that any school can close their achievement gaps regardless of the community they serve and that all students can achieve at high levels when they are provided with the right opportunities. This book is about understanding the factors that will promote progress and what contributed to the progress in the closing of the achievement gap that has occurred in selected countries. It is about creating opportunities for all students. The book provides information on the achievement gap in mathematics and science, current research on the subject, and strategies for fostering improvement and increasing performance with focus on school-related variables that adversely affect educational outcomes for poor and minority students.
