Students from 'wealthier, white families' doing better in high school
The performance gap in high schools across the United States is widening, according to new research by The Education Trust, which was analyzed and reported on by Education Week.
The new research found that, overall, students from "wealthier, white families" do better than those of color and of different backgrounds, Education Week said.
"These gaps are related to differences in achievement that students bring with them to kindergarten, as well as differential preparation in elementary and middle schools that does little to close those initial gaps," the report said, according to Education Week.
