        School of the Future | The Achievement Gap

        Examine the relationship between the achievement gap (the disparity in academic performance between groups of students) and the opportunity gap (the disparity in family income), in this video from NOVA: School of the Future. In comparing the resources and opportunities available to students of two high schools in neighboring California communities, the video highlights the inequality apparent in America’s public education system. In fact, the country’s comparatively high rate of poverty may explain why U.S. students consistently score lower than many of their global peers in the PISA test, an international assessment of 15-year-olds' skills and knowledge. This resource is part of the NOVA: School of the Future Collection.
