After More Than a Decade of Reform, How Have Schools Changed?

Nationally, the gap between the performance of black and white students declined by nearly ten percent since 2005, as did the gap between the performance of Hispanic and white students. Achievement gaps between low-income students and their more economically advantaged peers declined by 11 percent over the same period. These gaps have narrowed while overall performance levels have increased for white students and students from higher income families.
