Summer Episode 1: What we really know about the "achievement gap" between Black and White students

Release date: June 20, 2022


In this first mini summer episode, I expose truth of the so-called achievement gap between Black and White students and briefly introduce a strategy for supporting all kids as scholars and resilient human beings. Links to some of the research I cite can be found below. Full-length Talking About Kids episodes will return in late July with very special guests to help you prepare for the new school year.
