The Nature of the Achievement Gap at District 65, And the Scope of the Opportunity Gap
While Figure 1 reflects that District 65 has one of the largest achievement gaps in the nation, Dr. Reardon’s study shows that black students in District 65 have, on average, scored significantly better than black students in Berkeley and Atlanta, and better than 78% of the school districts in the nation. In addition, in calculating the socioeconomic status (SES) rating for black students in District 65 that is shown in Figure 1, Dr. Reardon used a median income of $55,535 for black families who had students attending the District. District 65’s free-lunch data, though, suggests that the median income of black families with students attending the District may be two-thirds that amount. In addition, in calculating the socioeconomic status (SES) rating for black students in District 65 that is shown in Figure 1, Dr. Reardon used a median income of $55,535 for black families who had students attending the District.
