New Institute Studies Achievement Gap

Who else is tired of hearing about the achievement gap and then never hearing about any sizable, relevant improvements to diminish it?

A new institute, the Institute for the Study of African-American Children, at Wayne State University will look intently at the growing achievement gap between white and black children. And, as usual, the leaders of the institute want to take a differnet approach: rally to community to help build assessments and reduce the academic achievment levels of black children.

Are you just as tired about hearing about these studies and institutes that try to improve black academic achievement just to begin at square one again as we are?

What do you think needs to happen to get black children and their families on the right track?
