“In a recent analysis from the Stanford Center on Education Policy, questions are raised concerning the racial and socioeconomic achievement gaps among students in U.S. school districts. Troubling results of the analysis include students in districts with the highest concentrations of poverty scoring on average over four grades lower than children in the wealthiest districts, and significant gaps between white and minority students – even in some of the wealthiest communities. Not all the results were discouraging, however. Several low-income districts reported above-average scores, suggesting the potential for high-quality schools to defy the odds. Knowing the impact of social determinants on education and health, school districts and communities must leverage available resources and partners to ensure that students, particularly vulnerable ones, are receiving adequate supports during and after school hours in order to increase opportunities for success.”
