Zip Codes and Achievement Gaps

The current issue of NEA Today features this cover story on zip codes and achievement gaps.  The focus on the educational inequalities in our country reminded me of my previous posts, A Tale of Two Libraries, Baby Talk, and No Rich Child Left Behind.  Looking at these articles together, one can not help but ask, are we doing enough to level the playing field for all children?  Knowing that a free public education is the bedrock of a democracy, are we really offering the same quality education to all?

Happy reading,
