AEI’s Frederick M. Hess and Pedro Noguera, Dean of the USC Rossier School of Education, draw from their book, A Search for Common Ground: Conversations About the Toughest Questions in K-12 Education, to talk about the achievement gap. The two discuss the factors that contribute to the gap, including family structure and individual behavior, racially separated schooling, and funding disparities, and explore what can be done to address the gap.
