achievement gap

For years Ann Arbor Public Schools have fought to close the achievement gap that exists between different sub-groups of students.  The district now has a shining example of what can be done.


A Community-wide effort is underway to close the achievement gap that exists in many area schools.  Ann Arbor’s chapter of the Link will host a public meeting Saturday at Washtenaw Community College to discuss what they already have in place.

The Ypsilanti school board last night received a presentation on the district's efforts to eliminate the achievement gap, but as WEMU's Bob Eccles reports, the presentation may have been a little too thorough, at least for one board member.
