The achievement gap, which refers to the disparity in academic performance between groups of students, is a pressing issue facing K-12 education. AIR is supporting states to close academic achievement gaps through strategies including alternative school discipline policies, GIS mapping, improved early childhood education, and culturally responsive instruction. In this video, the four directors of the regional Comprehensive Centers, which are funded by the Department of Education, discuss promising approaches in Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, and Texas.
