Title:Examining gaps in mathematics achievement among racial-ethnic groups, 1972-1992
Short Description:This publication conducts a series of analyses of several family- and school-based factors posited as explaining the minority and nonminority test score trends between the early 1970s and early 1990s.
Annotation:This publication conducts a series of analyses of several family- and school-based factors posited as explaining the minority and nonminority test score trends between the early 1970s and early 1990s. We hope these analyses inform the ongoing debate about the quality of children’s family environments, the quality of their schools, and how changes in families and schools are associated with student achievement, particularly for students from different racial-ethnic groups. Within this debate, questions remain regarding the effectiveness of public policies and increased investments in education and social programs in improving student achievement.
