Webinar: Closing the Achievement Gap

Thursday, December 15, 2016 – 3:00pm to 5:00pm EST

The achievement gap continues to affect some students from minority and low-income backgrounds across the country. Schools have a powerful opportunity to negate the effects of this achievement gap by fostering culture, academics, activities, and family connections. Drawing from his work with the Annenberg Institute for School Reform and his previous work with the Community Involvement Program at New York University’s Institute for Education and Social Policy, Richard Gray will share ideas on effective practices that can help support students, families, and educators to help overcome the achievement gaps.

Questions in Focus:

  • What does the research tell us about the achievement gap and why it exists?
  • How can we support schools with a large proportion of students from low-income backgrounds?
  • How do teachers and schools effectively support their students from different backgrounds?
