Within-School Achievement Gaps Support A Case For Subgroup Accountability

The Center for American Progress released a report yesterday that analyzes performance among student subgroups within schools, and the results are enlightening. CAP makes a strong case for why ESEA reauthorization must include provisions that require states to hold schools accountable for the achievement of all students. Without such accountability protections, achievement gaps like these will persist:
Approximately 1.2 million black students, 1 million Hispanic students, 2.8 million students with disabilities, 1.5 million students with limited English proficiency, and 2.8 million low-income students attend schools where their performance is more than 10 percentage points lower than their school’s overall performance.
